Default 666 mhz?

OK is this weird or what that it is six six six but that is the speed of my processor and it should be at 1.33 Ghz what could be causing this problem?

Quick! You need an exorcist!

Chances are your FSB isn't set to where it should be in the BIOS

most processors are 1/3 rds. Early pentiums are 133, 166, 200 (actually 199) etc. That still applies to todays processors. A 3ghz processor is actually 2999.99999999999999 (repeater), a 1.8ghz processor is 1799.999999999999999 (repeater). Well thats what the chip was designed for. Some mobos actually round it up or down 1 mhz or overclockers might change it.
