have you tried using cpu-z to view your clocks?

You nitwit, you dont need to get all worked up about system properties not showing your clock LOL, if its set to 4 in the bios, then its 4

If the dude is new to OCing, he prolly doesn't know that.

OP, as long as CPU-Z shows 4Ghz then you are fine. Also, some mobo's cycle down the CPU clocks when they aren't under load, so if CPU-Z isn't showing 4Ghz, you should boot up Prime95 and make sure that your CPU speeds up to 4Ghz. Ultimately, though, what Rowey says is right, if your Bios says 4, then it is 4.

I think that's pretty typical. My system properties shows my default clock speed of 3.4, but I'm currently at 4.5.
