Windows doesn't always report the correct speed for an OC'd processor.


I know that my Q6600 @ 3.2 was always reported as 3.6 in Vista and 7. Nothing to worry about.


The usual, make sure that any speedstep stuff is disabled. Get a hold of CoreTemp and check that both cores are operating at 3.2 When I was testing the stability of my 1055T and I got a hard lock, a reboot would bring one of the cores, usually core 0 to 1.85 or so. CPUz wouldn't always report it, but you can check each core with CT.
