New AM2 3800 Dual Core on go slow...

Built PC today, works fine apart from the fact it seems the CPU is on a go slow, taking over 1 minute to do 1M SuperPi.

Spec:

3800 AM2 DUAL CORE Energy Efficient model@stock speed, no cool and quiet.

2048MB PC6400 DDR800.

ABIT KN9 ULTRA.

HIPER 525W PSU.

Put NForce and video drivers on with no issues...any ideas?

BIOS update seems to have sorted it....a board designed for a recent CPU shipped with a BIOS from May, that would do it.

You may find that the dual core optimizer driver available from AMD might make a difference as well.
