cpu and MB noncompatible???fsb`?

Hi!! Sorry if my English is confusing, I'm from Norway. I hope someone can help me out here.
I ordered the Asus A8N-SLI PREMIUM but it has a max bus speed of 1000 MHz?!? Anyway that's what it says where I ordered it:

However on this other site it says the fsb on this motherboard is 2000 mhz!!

On Asus website it says that "Currently, it also supports AMD Athlon 64 X2 CPU".

So without giving it much thought I also ordered a AMD CPU ATHLON-64 4600+ X2 S-939 2.4GHz
Afterwards I learned that it's being said to have a Front Side Bus Speed of 2000 mhz here :

and a FSB of 1000 mhz here :

If the Athlon 64 x2 4600 fsb is 1000 mhz then I'll be fine right? I don't know much about these things but if it's correct that the prosessor I ordered uses a fsb of 2000 mhz and the MotherBoard can only do 1000 mhz, I'm in troubble aren't I ? Can anyone tell me if my new MB will work with my new cpu?
