if I right click my computer properties..

it lists Intel CoreDuo2 E8500 @3.16 / 3.17.

Why would it show this?

I'm pretty sure he's just busting our balls, I wouldn't take his questions seriously lol

At 379 posts, he should have picked up a little bit by now, so I'm assuming he's just being a smart-@#$. Good troll is good.

3.17 ??! you better have after-market cooling or LN2 cooling or your processor may over heat past 30ºC!!!!! Thats overclocking!!! That voids warranty!!! fdsgfgdfdsfgdfdsfds!!!

Hey listen. If he is seriously asking a noob question, remember, you were once all noobs - well, me too - back in the old S-100 bus days, back when building a computer meant taking soldering iron in hand.

Otherwise ...

I was actually serious in my question looking for a technical reply that explained why this was. Even something as simple as "rounding up"

But I laugh along with you anyways...

I guess I was stupid to ask.

nothing wrong here.
it is a very minor difference of clock speed.
