    T9550 running at a reduced FSB speed...

    Raven2k360

      Hello,

         If anyone can help me figure this out, I'd really appreciate it.  I just received my new Dell 1737 this weekend, and I ordered it with the T9550 Core 2 Duo processor.  All specs I find on this processor say it's a 2.66GHz processor with a FSB speed of 1066MHz, but both Ubuntu and Vista reporte the processor at 800MHz.  Does anyone know why this is?  The only thing I can think of is that the processor FSB is automatically matching the RAM's clock frequency.  Good ol' Dell doesn't allow you to view/change the processor or RAM specs in the BIOS either...lol.  Anyway, if anyone has any answers, I'd love to hear 'em...Google was pretty much worthless here.

       

      Thanks,

      - Justin
