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??

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.

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.

If it's happening on a regular basis, and only intermittently, and the board is new and under warranty, return it for replacement.
