If the CPU is not supported it will run at the wrong speed, this has nothing to do with the Operating System, but the BIOS. The BIOS is recognizing as 400fsb.

The Dell only supports 400 and 533fsb:

The obvious answer is to buy the correct supported CPU.

Googling is quicker than waiting for an answer....
