Overclock Pentium Dual Core E5500


just wondering if this image is correct

my old processor was a celeron 2.0 GHZ which when i overclocked would read in properties @2.3 Ghz 2.3 Ghz

Now Iv'e overclocked my 2.8 Ghz Dual core E5500(2.8 Ghz)
and it says @2.8Ghz 3.28Ghz

I was wondering if what it is showng is correct??

Also i have a Geforce GT 430 which seems to have dropped my desktop graphics WEI Score(score was 5 , now 4.4) but upped my gaming graphics (not a problem really)

sorry if its a lame question

It usually shows the stock clock speed follwed by the OC or actual speeds.
At least thats how mine always has.

Was 3.28Ghz what you had it set for in the bios? If so its normal.

As WM mentioned, it will show both the stock speed and the overclocked speed.

If 3.28ghz is your OC - it's correct. If not, the WEI sometimes has issues showing the correct info for OC clock speeds from the BIOS multiplier.

Take a look in BIOS for your clock speeds, it'll show the default and current clock in there.
