Default Amd Athlon Cp 3200+ Runnin At 1900+????

I had recently purchased some new parts for my pc, but for some reason i couldnt get it to run. Last resort was to give it to a friend who knows a technician, got it back today and it runs fine. But then i just realized as i was looking through the properties that it was running at 1900+ my cousin says it could be to do with loss of clock speed, but never so much! Is it possible that its loss of clock speed, or has the technician robbed my processor!?

Thanks for any help

The published speed for that CPU is 2.2 GHz, so there could be a jumper setting that is "under-clocking" your chip.

Here's where I found the specs on the XP-3200:
\"Every OS sucks\"- Three Dead Trolls in a Baggie
Old computers never die...they get upgraded.
System Specs:
Depending which room I\'m in......
Home built POS...
P-3 500MHz .......
Athlon 1.1GHz.....
But they keep workin\'.....

What is your motherboard it could be your motherboard doesnt support 3200 so it could have rolled back the speeds.

The FSB may be set incorrectly (correct setting for the 3200+ is 200 MHz FSB with a multiplier of 11 - 11*200), which can usually be caused by clearing the CMOS.

Check your BIOS setup to make sure those settings are correct.
