i already have this installed but it dosnt give you an option for 600k only an option for 512k

That is true, but it still gives you a good indecation of the speed you are useing, it's just that it may say you are running faster than expected. Just look at the figures not the comments.

Also Remember contention ratios - if other people using same slot remember it is 600 k divided by number of actual users
