Question cpu doesnt read right

I'm toying around with an old ACER V75M board. It was made for IBM and shipped in an Aptiva 2170. I put a 500mhz k6-2 in it, and it seems to have some weird problem that i haven't isolated yet.

When it boots, sometimes it boots just fine and i can go into bios and see that the chip is reading as a 500mhz amd k6-2. Sometimes when it boots up, it spits out a PC CONFIGURATION ERROR , CPU CLOCK ERROR. When it does this i go into bios and it's reading the CPU as 470 or 475mhz (i can't remember the exact mhz at this moment).

Its really strange because i know the jumpers on the board are set right. There are no BIOS CLOCK settings for this board. All clock settings are set with dip switches/jumpers and i have the jumper diagram for this board. According to all the documentation i have, i have everything set just as it should be, yet every 2 or 3 bootups it will do this stupid thing where it doesnt CLOCK properly.

When it does this, i'll just go and reboot the system again and it will go back to reading it as 500mhz again.

Any ideas? Other than the strange error and my knowing something weird is going on, the pc is running smoothly.

I think the CONFIGURATION ERROR is related to the CPU FAN connector because i had to rig it up. The board has a 2 pin connector but my fan has a 3 pin connector.

The clock is set to 5.0, the FSB is set to 100, the voltage is set to 2.2v.

Ideas anyone?
