The computation is automatic.  You use advanced only if you wish to overclock the system.  I do not advise you touch the settings at all and leave them at the defaults.

In you bios setup utility there is an 'Advanced' Page.

In this page you'll see all the information regarding setting cpu frequency, multiplier, etc.

Usually 'CPU Speed' is only set to Manual if you want to adjust the settings yourself.  Once you've chosen manual here you can then change the 'CPU Frequency Multiple' and 'CPU External Frequency (MHz)' if you want to control it yourself.

If you want to set it yourself, set it to 17 x 100, fyi.
10 Tips to Protect Your Business from Ransomware

Did you know that ransomware is the most widespread, destructive malware in the world today? It accounts for 39% of all security breaches, with ransomware gangsters projected to make $11.5B in profits from online extortion by 2019.

And just an fyi, your Asus board is jumperless (with regards to cpu/fsb settings, anyway) so you'll never need to set any when putting in new cpu's.

But, guys sometime when bootup it will display an error that states "Improper cpu speed" in the bios so how can i resolve this problem that everytime it boots up it does not display the said error..
It sounds like the BIOS is forgetting what cpu you have - the CMOS battery may be losing power.  That board is not that old, so I'm surprised.  Try replacing the battery.
Glen A.IT Project ManagerCommented:
If it's happening on a regular basis, and only intermittently, and the board is new and under warranty, return it for replacement.

AlbertaBeef, about your comment on set it to 17X100 what would be the cpu frequency multiple and the cpu external frequency?
Glen A.IT Project ManagerCommented:
cpu external frequency is 100.  cpu multiple is 17.
theroosterAuthor Commented:
so guys what is the cpu external frequency? 100/33 or 100/66?
theroosterAuthor Commented:
in addition to that can we display it when the system boots up to 1.7 ghz?
Glen A.IT Project ManagerCommented:
You're given an option of 100/33 or 100/66?  It should just show 100, according to the manual.

If it's showing 100/66 as well it must be ready for 66MHz pci, which you DO NOT have.  At which point you should choose 100/33.

>>in addition to that can we display it when the system boots up to 1.7 ghz?

can we display what??
