yeah its normal windows doesnt show overclocked speed

think it just reads the cpu id and puts the default speed for that cpu model

do you mean you double click computer and your ssd shows as device with removable storage?

none of my 3 ssds do that they all show as hard drives

just plugged a samsung 830 into my hot swap dock

still shows as a hard drive not a removable

scores 734 on as ssd

though i have a ton of stuff on it and my cctv running

so if your scores are over that for a single 840 pro then i wouldnt worry about it showing as removable

I think windows "reads" the CPU registers, to find the family, stepping, revision and the speed.

Its like a string of text.
