I just bought and installed what I thought was an AMD XP1700 processor.
I booted up my new system and the chip is recognized as 1100 MHz not the 1.47 it should be.
I checked System Information from win98 and it says its an authentic AMD Athlon mmx 1100mhz processor. The boot screen also has the same info.

Is there a way for me to verify 100% what chip I have ?
Other than removing the Chipfan ???

You may not be using the correct clock multiplier for the chip. What is your current clock information set at and what type of motherboard do you have?

I thought the clock multiplier was FIXED on AMD XP series processors.  (See: http://www6.tomshardware.com/column/01q4/011124/video2_ocingxp-01.html)

My guess would be a defective chip or a dishonest dealer who sold you a 1100 chip as a 1700.

Enter BIOS setup and set the FSB to 133MHz. It tis probably set at 100 MHz now. This should correct the problem. If you are unable to run at 133, your memory is more than likely not PC133.

Also check to see if the CPU's voltage settings are correct in the bios

FSB@100X11=1,100
FSB@133X11=1,470

Can't do better than jlauster and tmj883--your FSB is set to 100MHz and the CPU requires 133.

Of course, if your motherboard is only actually capable of supporting a 100MHz FSB, or you only have 100MHz SDRAM, you might be in trouble.
