What you're looking for is cpu-z. CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting If you're looking for Windows to report the OC correctly and display it somewhere, forget it.

modern intel chips have a technology known as EIST - normally shortened to 'speedstep' - which basically slows the chip down when it isn't being used heavily. this also cranks down the voltage, thus saving power and reducing heat buildup. this is a Good Thing.

if you try starting a program which uses the processor (eg a virus scan), you should notice that your processor will then start running at its top speed.

so, try running a virus scan and check cpu-z again - it should then report your overclocked speed.

Yeah as Micky says , run a program that uses your cpu to the full then you will see cpuz change to the full clock speed.

You could download prime95 and run that (us overclockers use it to test stability and temps) it will max your cpu to 100% while running.

Cheers

See if this answers your question - Wrong clock speed!

BTW I'm runnig at 3.8, but my properties page (system info) shows 3.06, that's because EIST (speedstep) is enabled.

I assumed you meant in the "system" in "control panel"....which I also assumed you had looked at.
Unfortunately I'm not a mind reader.
