  1. FSB Is different from your CPU

    Your MOBO isn't being slowed down.

    If you have doubts look for the latest BIOS update.
  2. fsb * multiplier = cpu speed, fsb is normaly 100, 133, 200Mhz depending on generation of processor.

    Look up FSB on wikipedia, and follow it through to processor clockspeed and memory speeds.
