Question sempron?

i just put a new system together
abit nf7-s mobo
maxtor 120gb hdd
xfx ge-force 5200
sempron 2500+

in the bios it says my cpu is an athlon xp...
i have no trouble with stability or anything, just wondering if this will have any impact on anythng?

its clocked at 1790mhz, what is the max recomended speed for the 2500+ sempron?
my fsb is 333.

just curious, i have realy no need to speed up my cpu cause the 1790 is extramly fast for me. (since my previous system was a 400mhz k6-2)

the temps are amazing, case is at 29*C and the cpu is 47*C
this is amazing cause my mothers 1050mhz duron is normaly at bout 55-60*C.

What sort of heatsinks are you using?

My CPU is 30degrees idle and 45degrees when loaded up.

The Sempron 2500+ (Thoroughbred 'B') seems a lot like the Athlon XP's with the same core.
^ there isnt much difference between the two, so it probly just mistaking it for the Athlon XP. It also shows the max temp as 85C

Hope I could help...

scince the motherboard was created before sempron it sees it as a athlon xp

Reason: Both Sempron and Athlon XP are socket A proccesors

I would go to google or yahoo and type CPU Z. This will tell you alot about your computer. And should say its a sempron. That dont make alot of sense though, why wouldent your operating system identity your processor currectly.
