    Anyone know why Celeron Tualatin 1400/256/100/1.5 (SL6C6) only cycles at
    1200MHz ?
    Shouldn't it be running at the documented 1400MHz since the multiplier is
    internally "intel fixed" to 14x ?
    Is is then a 1200MHz in disguise :-o

    ASUS P3B-F rev.1.04 flashed with latest beta BIOS (1008 beta 04).
    Upgradeware Slot-t

    Vcore is monitored to 1.472 volts.

    Running the test utility WCPUID in the OS displays the correct and complete
    CPU information :)
    I Guess the BIOS does not know the name of newer CPUs like Tualatins:
    It says: "Intel(R) Pentium(R) II 1200 MHz Processor".

  3. If you still have the original 1008 beta 4 BIOS, you may want to flash
    one that at least contains more recent microcode updates:
    (One with changed CPU/freq display is not really necessary, since that
    is purely cosmetic. Microcode updates, however, are not that
