Memtest shows Anthlon CPU but Phenom installed?
Feb 4, 2010, 2:20 AM
I just put together my first build. It is a Phenom X2 550BE
with 4 GB sticks of OCZ BE DDR3 1600
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?

Install the OS and try again.

As I said, there is no OS installed, not needed. I did install Memtest 4.0 and it shows fine now. Thanks for the reply
