    i have an Intel D865gbf board, a p4 2.66 ghz processor & 256MB ddr266 ram. earlier i had an asrock P4i45GL board. the problem is, ever since i've changed my board, the CPU speed has been locked at 2Ghz. In windows system properties, it shows the processor speed as 2.66GHz in the procesor name and right below it, the running speed as 2.00GHz. In the intel system info options on the board CD, FSB is 533 MHz while CPU speed in 2.00B Ghz. ditto for BIOS. and when i ran BIOS in configure mode(by changing the jumper settings on the board), under the maintenance options, the speed selection ratio was locked at 15(it was 20 in the previous board, adjustable of course)
    when i ran the intel processor frequency ID utility, the FSB freq was reported to be 531 mhz and a note said that the processor was not a stock production processor. this PC was originally a Zenith model before i changed my mobo. now, since intel boards lock the cpus at their rated frequency, what i would like to know is,
    i) was i duped into believing that this processor is a 2.66 GHz CPU while actually it was a 2 GHz one? And if so, has any 533 mhz fsb 2 ghz p4 ever been produced? i checked the intel website, 2.26ghz was the lowest speed for 533m fsb that i saw.
    ii) or is it that there is some genuine problem with the board or the processor, or the combination of these two? if yes, how can it be fixed?

    plz help...

    have told the vendor...says he'll look into it. lets wait and watch.
    but right now, what i m really curious to know is wether there really is a 2 ghz fsb 533 mhz p4 in the market. as i said before, the lowest 533mhz fsb cpu that i could find out was a 2.26 ghz p4, so hows my machine showing a 2 ghz one?

    Post the detail reasult obtained from Intel Processor frequency ID utility. Particularly of CPUID DATA Tab. Including Stepping processor details etc. Since this is the only authenticate programme to detect exact frequency of an Intel CPU.
    I think your mother board is Original Intel D865GBF Board. If not post your Mother board details also including bios version.

    It seems that fault lies in CPU, but with extensive testing it is difficult to draw conclussion.

    they always adviced us to look at the processor, the print, to comfirm the exact specifications of the processors!! it is easy to manipulate thru the software. i think ur cpu vendor needs some explaining to do!!
