i just overclocked my 3570k from stock speeds to 4.0ghz(atleast i think i did).

I just went into ai tweaker and changed it to xmp and disabled multicore enhancement and changed the thing to 40.

Now, the problem im getting is that when go into mycomputers > properties, it still reads my cpu as 3.4ghz instead of 4.0.

anyone know why its doing this?

Completely normal. Windows doesn't normally report overclocks in the System Properties for Intel CPU's. It's the same way for me. Supposed to say 4.5 and it just says 3.3.

Use CPU-Z if you want to check the speed. RealTemp and Core Temp also show the speed along with the Core temps.
