My i5-750 reads as an I7 in CPU-z

I was running CPU-z when I got a weird error, it said I had an i7. It's not the first time it's done it. Some attempted OC's did that during unstability, but Now I'm running at stock speeds, and it randomly did it.

I wonder if the i5-750 is no more than a stripped down i7-860?

i5-750 has the same die as the i7-870, it's just clocked a little different and has hyperthreading disabled at the end of the production process.

As Crashman said, BTW crash good to see you are still alive :p , its basically the same as the i7-860/870.

Its just like say a Pentium Dual Core was basically a low end Core 2 Duo. Same die, same process just labled differently.

If anything it might be a bug in CPUz.
