Has anyone had a problem with their Duron or Athlon on an MSI K7T Pro2-A oc'd posting as a different speed? I flashed my bios from 1.9 to a beta bios and everything worked fine. I then went to the hacked bios and things started acting weird after that. I flashed back to the beta bios, but sometimes when I'm at 900mhz it says Duron 500mhz while booting up. I have Kingmax 128mb PC150 Cas2 running at 133mhz Cas2 just fine and everything works in 98 perfect. If I run Sandra it reads the CPU speed also as 500mhz.

What's up wit dat?
I've run into that problem while testing processors. I haven't personally seen a problem once it is set up. :)
...but is it running at 500mhz or at 900mhz? I heard someone say just cold boot it once or twice and it should post at the correct speed. As of right now it is at 900mhz, but who knows what'll happen next!
Crap... I'd better find out why the hell it's doing that then.
