P4PE and 3.06HT Problems

I just installed a 3.06GHz P4 with HT. I am running P4PE Rev. 1.03 with
the latest 1007 BIOS. On post the screen shows 2 1.60GHz CPUs (not 2
3.06 GHz CPUs like I expected). There is a Power Hardware alert that
indicates VCore is low at 1.26V. The system boots into WinXP and is
totally stable but Windows indicates that the chip is a 3.06GHz Pentium
4 running at 1.60GHz.
Needless to say this is NOT OK. I checked the Intel Frequency ID
Utility (dowloaded from Intel) and it too indicates a 3.06GHz Pentium 4
running at 1.60 GHz. I have an Antec 400W Power supply. I tried
disconnecting all drives except the BOOT drive and a graphics card with
this CPU. Same problem occurs. I am stumped. Is my power supply to
blame? I doubt its the chip. Is it the P4PE Voltage Regulator?
I have a "spare" P4PE-X and hooked it up with that exact same
results (that is a 1.03 Revisision board running 1007 Award BIOS as
well). I researched the ASUS site and it says that my board is fully
capable of running the Intel 3.06Ghz P4 with HT.
I have tried the following:
CHECKED MY BOARD REVISION
WIN XP Runs STABLE
SWAPPED BOARDS AND STILL HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM
Thanks in Advance.
