New rig finally finished and up and running. Last machine I o/c'd was an E8400. I ran cpu-z and confused why my cpu is 1.64Ghz. Im guessing that Im not reading it correctly cause Windows is showing 3.4. The only thing I have done was change the BIOS from normal to Performance.
We went over this in the other thread, but yes it's SpeedStep (and the C-States), and Prime 95 or the High Performance power profile in Windows will accomplish the same task of being able to see the full speed of the OC..
