P4 2.6ghz Northwood @ 1.3ghz ??

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I have a P4 2.6ghz Northwood s478 in a ECS L4VXA2 (1.0A). The CPU is stuck at 1.3ghz, but everest says (original 2600mhz) and when you right click "My Computer" it'll say P4 2.6 and below it'll say 1.3ghz. I tried resetting cmos, didnt help. Post will show it as 1.3ghz. I went to ECS's website, but it only has the product page for L4VXA2 (1.0C). They must be similiar, I dont know, but it says that it supports P4 2.6 Northwoods. Any help is appreciated~
