    TForce 6100 wrong cpu speed 10Ghz!

    TForce 6100 (socket 754)
    Sempron 2800+
    2 GB Crucial DDR400 Ram
    No Overclock

    I had some issues with ram initially causing it not to boot. That seems to be resolved now. However, when I boot into Windows or Linux, the OS indicates a processor speed in excess of 9 Ghz. The amd clock utility reports it correctly.

    The machine seems to run ok, but can be surprisingly laggy at times.

    I have the latest bios that I could find. I've actually tried 3 different BIOSes, the issue is consistent.

    Any thoughts? I'm wondering if the board is borked.

    Thanks

    Re: TForce 6100 wrong cpu speed

    At post it says Sempron 2800+ (no clock info).

    It's all stock...there is an overclock navigotar in the bios, but it is set to "normal".

    Thanks

    I dug up some monitoring software, and it is reporting the front side bus fluttering around 1300 Mhz. That's not a typo...Windows says this thing runs over 10 Ghz now.

    I emailed biostar and they said to check my windows drivers. That's not going to do much good, since this was happening in linux as well.

    Should I RMA the board, or return it and get something esle? I need it to be microATX and socket 754.

    i have no idea what the problem is, but for sure you should be able to get some bragging rights!

    pop a screenie of that if you can!

    --does the system run stable?

    you might try posting your problem here http://www.rebelshavenforum.com/sisu...ubb=forum;f=53

    maybe Polygon and those guys can figure out what the deal is

    It's running stable. I lost 1 whole gigahertz since earlier post. Notice the conflicting messages I am getting?

    still looking for answers...mostly out of curiosity.

    cpu-z says 1.6085GHZ, which looks pretty normal if slow. What's the issue here again?

    I get a little nervous when two different operating systems can't determine the speed of my processor. AMDClock and CPU-Z both report it correctly, but I'd prefer everything working right.

    Re: TForce 6100 wrong cpu speed 10Ghz!

    So the motherboard is getting returned. I tried a different processor (A64 3200+) and I was getting 13 Ghz! The problem was, it was intermittently unstable, and the machine could not play video at all.

    People seem to like this board, and I'm sure I got a lemon, but I'm not doing another biostar this time...I don't have weeks to wait for the rma stuff to happen.

    Thanks
