Windows 7: 64-bit ready???

64-bit ready???

Just got my new system, and it's supposed to be Win 7 Pro 64 bit, with 3.30 gig Intel Core i5-2500K...tweaked to 4.0 gigs...

But, when I used Belarc Advisor to see what is on the system, it shows "64-bit ready"... does that means my system is running at 32 bit?

I mean, if it were running on 64 bit, then why does it say 64-bit ready and not just say 64 bit?

ALso, what's a good way to tell if it's really tweaked from the manufacturer to run at 4 gigahertz?

Also, it shows "Not hyper-threaded"... wouldn't it be better to enable Not hyper-threading, or no?

Go to control panel/system. What does it say next to "system type"?

I think the 2500k is an i5 and I don't think it supports hyper-threading. The 2600K is an i7-with hyper-threading.

You can use something like CPU-Z to determine your actual clock speed--4.0 or whatever it is. Most 2500k processors will reach 4.0 without breaking much of a sweat.

OK, it does say it is a 64bit type...

I'll look in to the CPU-Z to see if it can read actual clock speed...

Boot Ready CDs/DVDs won't boot even after they are boot ready!
The screen says: CD/DVD-ROM Boot Priority: Boot Ready But it goes to the regular boot screen. If it wasn't reading the disk, it wouldn't be saying Boot Ready. It is arranged to boot from the CD-ROM, otherwise, it wouldn't be saying CD-ROM Boot Priority.
