Just got myself a refurbished PC from UBid in the mail today and when I fired it up it reports the CPU speed as 1145 Mhz. I was supposed to get an Athlon CP 1800 + processor. The chip is supposed to be ~1530 Mhz but I thought I remembered hearing that the bus speed of the mobo can affect this reading. I have 2 questions: 1. Is the chip in there what I was supposed to get (can't really see the cip itself as it is covered by heat sink and fan). 2. If is is the correct chip, are the mobo settings correct to get the most performance out of the chip. If more info is needed, let me know. I just upgraded from a pentium 2 so these things are new to me. Thanks.
