        I didn't know Via made a C7 on an EPIA board... or a C7 at all.

        EDIT: Ahh, after googling, I found it. Interesting.

                I just recently bought a c7 1.5ghz and I havent checked what its showing up as in windows but i bought mine at www.mini-box.com. I was also wondering what motherboard monitoring utilities you are using.

                    i would say that the cpu-z reading is the right one, I'm gonna take a look at mine tonight, I'm willing to bet that its a C7 since on the cpu-z site they just recently added support for the C7 and its a fairly new processor

                          I think you are fine man, just need bios updates, cpu update for windows or something.

                            well it's probably cause the c7 is an updated c3 with some new features, but basically shares the same core

                            check out the wikipedia article
                            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VIA_C7

                              Its states clearly in most of the ebay adds that windows will report it as a 800mhz c3! Don't know why I just found a C7 board with m2 atx AND A Voom case for 160
