My motherboard started reading my cpu wrong sometime this month I think. If I look at my system info it says amd engineering sample 1.6ghz. I ran cpuz and it says the name is amd opteron 1300 black edition, but it's really phenom ii x710.
I've tried updating my drivers and doing a bios flash, but it hasn't helped any.

According to Asrock this board doesn't take Opteron processors but it should see the 710 out of the box.
Are you overclocking? According to one Google hit I found if you overclock this processor some boards suddenly decide it's an Opteron processor.
