    Yes, 867 MHz is the maximum rated clock frequency of the 7451. It can certainly reach nowhere near the MorphOS-stated 1.6 GHz. That's just MorphOS using bogus base values for some reason and thus calculating wrong CPU clock. Nothing to worry about and has happened before. It may have to do with your CPU card not being the original 350...500 MHz 7400 one.
