I'm running Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H board with an Intel 3770 (Non K) processor. In windows 8.1, I noticed in Performance (Task Manager) it is reported that the maximum speed is 3.4GHz (should be 3.9 with Turbo) and the total number of cores is 2.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Note: I've made sure my BIOS settings are correct (34 Multiplier etc.)
I think that you are okay, but just to be sure and to make you confident in your CPU, download and run the free and very awesome Belarc Advisor from HERE
. It will tell you more than you ever wanted to know about your machine, including all of your serials and activation keys. Just skip the network portion as it takes a lot of time for little information unless you have a complex network.
