    Check the voltage and multiplier settings in you Bio's options.It's probally an incorrect setting.

    I suspect that you have the FSB set to 266 instead of 333.

    alright, i went into bios, and now my comp is running at about 2.785 (it is a 2.8ghz processor). Also, I got the FSB going at 800mhz as a added bonus, and the CPU temp is 37 celsius. Job well done?

    ehh, my BIOS is kind of kid proofed, so I had to adjust this thing in "manual" that had a number ranging from 100 to 200.
