Gadgets that recognizes Cpu Overclock?

Does anyone know of a sidebar gadget that recognizes overclock? , cause the ones I've tried just report the stock speeds, and also if there is a Cpu-z like gadget. I've been to google and can't seem to find one.

Thanks!

Yeah, been there, done that. Even ones that claim to show actual clock speed only show stock clock for me. Hoever, if you have everest Ultimate, you can use this and it shows real clock plus much more if you chose. Everest must run at startup to make it work though. Hoping someone else has some that work.

I use IntelCoreSeries24.gadget, it shows the OC speed, CPU utilization, and also displays core temps (as accurate as Core Temp). It also displays memory used.

Hi,

Have a look at this one, it's made by a German guy but it's in English.

Core temp works fine with overclocked AthlonX2 Turion. All overclock settings I tried were reflected.

Core temp works. However you need to install another software which is a drag. The Orb software works great. In order for you to get max out of it-need to install the driver. The Windows gadget is quite small too which is a big plus. Displays vcore too.
