    Occasionally my CPU is shown as a Duron 1050MHZ on boot up. It is actually
    a Athlon 1800+. After resetting the cmos via the jumper and changing the FSB
    in the BIOS it shows up correctly. Anyone know why thhis happens? TIA

    The board ships with a crappy CMOS battery. New ones at Radio Shack
    (Toshiba, etc.) are $3 and cheaper online. Many name brands available. I
    believe it's a 2032 lithium. This may not fix your problem but it's a good
    idea to change it anyhow. The board has a lost CMOS problem that there's no
    fix for. Are you using a good brand of power supply?
