It may have been one of the Win 7 updates.

My Vista 64bit showed the OC speed, and I am almost positive that Win 7 may have shown the OC speed as well, but it doesn't now.

Your issue most likely stems from the fact that Windows doesn't report multipliers properly.

Here's a Prime example. The multi in my BIOS is set is @ 21*200 = 4.2Ghz.

However, Windows does not properly acknowledge the 21 multi and thinks it's @ 20*200 = 4Ghz, but I know my chip is running at 4.2ghz

Ultimately mate, it doesn't matter what Windows is reporting - your chip is running at full speed when necessary.

OK, to clearify and correct - Here's what I found out...

If you have SpeedStep or EIST (Enhanced Intel SpeedStep® Technology) disabled in your BIOS, Windows 7/Vista WILL show BOTH the default and OVERCLOCK speeds.

As seen by my system....

CPU-Z with EIST Disabled....

CPU-Z shows the processor at full capacity, no load.

So.... depending on whether you have SpeedStep/EIST enabled or disabled will determine what Windows 7/Vista will show for clock speeds.

BTW I've enabled/disabled EIST in the BIOS. Not sure if it can be done in Windows, so.

At any rate rocstar96 HAD/HAS a valid point. And I would than say check your SpeedStep/EIST settings.

Sorry for my misunderstanding.

Peace

Thanks Fabe, I just hope rocstar96 sees it. We were a little harsh

Just curious, is this an issue with how Windows report Intel processor clock speed?
