1.536 may be correct. Often there is a small difference in the actual and what is listed in the general specs. It is just so close they round it off.
Checking the power supply is a good start. That it is functioning properly and that it is of decent quality and that it is adequate for the system.
Also check for BIOS updates and that the CPU is actually supported.
In the MIT section of the BIOS make sure the "performance enhance" option is set to "standard". It is usually set to "turbo" by default. Make sure the memory timings are correctly set. If not set them manually. You may need to set the timings to "manual" to see them, if they are correct set it back to auto, if not make the necessary changes and leave it on manual.
