Windows 7 x64 Build 7100 RC

Ah, the picture should enlarge but yeah, the multiplier is supposed to be x16... (~3.2ghz). The computer im on atm is x8 but its got a higher BUS Speed but that info is totally irrevelant.

Ive gone into the bios and ive manually set the multiplier to x16 and it doesnt make a difference what so ever. Ive even tried lower values. Im still getting around to attempting a bios update but i cant find my damn USB thumb drive.

I don't know if this could help, but you can try RMClock. I use that on my Q6600 because Windows doesn't like my motherboard and it doesn't lower the clock frequency at idle. So, I take the control with RMClock.

It's something I've been interested in for awhile but never got into it, but since I won't be able to get it soon I thought why not. Something I thought about while downloading it is if it can be applied to the...

Why isn't my computer working to it's full potential?
I have 6 gb of ram, and usually games and web browsers like firefox take up 900,000 or 1,000,000 kb of memory. that's around 1 gb of ram. I still have 5 more gb that could be used to make my programs and games run more efficient. Is there a way to do that without overclocking? Because my gpu isn't...

Memory of 3 GB running full ?
My memory seems to be running full - this means in the Task Manager under "Free" often a 0 shows up. I added a Screenshot below which shows my normal situation. I noticed that often for example Opera doesn't show pages correctly, even not at all. Opera eats plenty of memory as I see. But I also...

Full RAM Potential
My windows 7 64bit PC which I have recently built says that there is 4gb of RAM on my system (which there is) but only 3.5gb of which is usable. I have an 880GMA-UD2H giga-byte motherboard. When I enter the BIOS I can't seem to see a memory remap option, although maybe I've just missed it....
