Memtest shows Anthlon CPU but Phenom installed? Tags: New Build CPUs Phenom Systems Last response: February 4, 2010 2:50 AM in Systems Share morabors February 4, 2010 2:20:12 AM I just put together my first build. It is a Phenom X2 550BE http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E... with 4 GB sticks of OCZ BE DDR3 1600 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... The system has no OS yet but I am running Memetest. Memtest says I have Anthlon 64 with 128L L1, 512K L2 and no L3 RAM settings 519MHZ DDR 1038, CAS 1-3-1, DDR1 128 bit. This concerns ne because the CPU should be a Phenom with L2 Cache 2 x 512KB L3 Cache 6MB and the memory should be DDR3. Is there a problem and if so how do I address it? I did not bother to check the CPU before I installed it, could it be wrong?
