Dude you can change all the motherboards you wan't, Windows 7/Vista will only use the default speed of the processor. In XP you would see your overclocked speed, but NOT in Windows 7/Vista.

Anybody here with an overclocked processor under Win 7/Vista will confirm this!

Maybe this is possible with a "hack" job, I don't know, but this is "normal" behavior under Win 7/Vista.

Good luck on your quest.
This!!!

Totally agree, I don't know what you saw, or remember, but as has been said Normal Behavior.

What are you talking about? That's exactly what I (we) said....

Windows 7 IS showing the processor at 2.66GHz, CPU-Z is showing the processor at 3.3GHz.

Which is exactly what I said when I posted my images.

Perhaps we missed what you were saying in your original post?
