ok so i oc's my crap e4600 to 2.90z (tried for 3 but the ram didnt like it)

system info is showing it as 2.40 stock speed and then directly under that it shows my oc'd 2.90

cpu-z shows me running at 2.90 i dont have any power saving intel bois crap on....is that normal for core 2's to show themselves in the system info like that?!?

sorry for thye jumbled mess of writing im tired and slightly drunk

If cpu-z shows it at 2.9 it's ok, you're running at the right speed. I get the same thing in system info for xp32, default speed and overclocked value under it .
The funny thing is when you use a lower multiplier to overclock, system info is stuck thinking at default multiplier, so you might get a higher than overclock value displayed (e.g: for a Q6600 2.4GHz, 425 x 8 should be 3.4 GHz overcloked, system info detects it as 425 x 9 and shows around 3.8Ghz).

Thats just wrong

In Vista x64, my system window shows:

E6750 @ 2.66Ghz 2.67 Ghz

CPU-Z shows 3600Mhz

I'm pretty sure it just shows the default clock for whatever CPU you're using. Whatever speed CPU-Z reports is what your CPU is running at.
