Memtest shows Anthlon CPU but Phenom installed?

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?

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
