I just installed a new Intel CPU - P4 3.06/533FSB in my motherboard
P4T533-C. MBM is reporting 1.2 as the speed. I went into the Bios
and can only select a maximum speed of 1200MHZ. The multiplier is
showing 12x and the Vcore is showing 1.2V. I had the motherboard on
jumper free mode and had been using a P4 1.8 /400MHZ before this.

I ran CPU ID and it shows that the CPU is an Intel 3.06G, Internal
Clock -1205.33, System Bus 401.78MHZ, System Clock 100.44MHZ

What else do I need to set-up ? Or have I just purchased a bad CPU ?
Please help.
Thanks.

Try 133 instead of 100 (533)

Make sure the board is on jumperless mode and then let it run a bit.
I installed a new 3.2 Prescott into my P4P800-SE. At initial bootup
it reported it at a lower frequency (1800 or 2800, I can't recall)
than normal, but after another reboot or two without mishap, it and
the OS (WinXP) saw the proc at the right speed (3200). This may be a
default characteristic of ASUS boards. Incidently, my proc was a
boxed retail chip/hsf from Newegg. Good luck.
