Hello guys, i just want to get clear about this. I Have E6300 (1.8GHz stock) and OC it to 2.7GHz (without raising the Vcore).
This is what i get from windows properties:



It says that my speed is 2.3GHz.
But CPU-Z read:




BIOS also says that my speed is 2.7GHz.
So, is it right?
Should i worry?
So far so good, i'm gaming without problem.
Thank you for your opinions and answers, i'm noob when it comes to OC. :)

have you got speedstep enabled?
it may be slowing your chip down when not needed so much, just doublecheck you disabled it before overclocking :)

it would be in your bios screen somewhere, not too sure exactly where as Im not an intel builder sorry
but speedstep is similar to amd's cool and quiet, it slows the processor down when it doesnt need to use a lot of power, energy efficiency type thing if your overclocking you want to turn stuff like that off

SpeedStep will reduce the internal multiplier to X6. The X7 multiplier indicates that the CPU is not throttling back.

I would trust your BIOS and CPUZ.

Umm, yes, when idle the multiplier is x6 (GPU-Z).
On that CPU-Z indicate my multi is x7 (that's because i hit F5 repeatedly to get the multi x7) and then i hit "Print Screen" button to save the image. :) 

So, it's okay, right?
I'm new to this OC things, i'm a little bit surprised that my E6300 can go far from 1.8GHz to 2.7GHz without raising the VCore...
