    Just had a client contact me over msn after hes taken a look at the server information and this is what hes seen:

    Processor Information

    Processor #1 Vendor: AuthenticAMD
    Processor #1 Name: AMD Athlon(tm) Prosussor

    So what is a prosussor?

    I'm not sure how it's done but I have seen some 900mhz AMD Duron's report back as Athlon 1400+ Pro or something. This seems to be something that the bios was reporting back on boot time and the server was picking it up and displaying it. I only found out it was a duron after UNBOLTING the fan/heatsink from the motherboard and looking at the chip itself.

    Is it possible your processor could be a overclocked AMD chip and the BIOS was modified to report back a higher number than it really is ?

    Search Google for 'prosussor'.

    Looks like many people across different OSes have had the same issue before. From what I briefly read it sounds like it's caused by the bios not quite picking up on things correctly.

    Did that and it shows the same typo so im guessing its bios related.

    On another note i have another server identical to this so figured id check that:

    1st Server

    Processor #1 Vendor: AuthenticAMD
    Processor #1 Name: AMD Athlon(tm) Prosussor
    Processor #1 speed: 2158.003 MHz

    2nd Server

    Processor #1 Vendor: AuthenticAMD
    Processor #1 Name: AMD Athlon(tm) XP 3000+
    Processor #1 speed: 2158.003 MHz

    Now both these servers are identical in every way, same cpu, same ram, same OS (centos) and same DC so in theory they should have both been setup the same way.

    Its not making any difference usage wise im just curious more than anything.
