Maybe you should contact the creator's and see if you can get it 'sorted'. here: http://www.cpuid.com/contact.html

lol, maybe I will.

Is it an unreasonable request? Maybe a silly one but unreasonable?

I don't think it's unreasonable to say, add a field for effective clock. Not a bad idea really.

lol well that settles it.
That's all I'm saying. I had 2 common panic attacks when this build was complete.
1 that many encounter thinking that their idle 2500k was not running at it's advertised clock speed and 2 that many encounter thinking their ram was not running at it's advertised speed.

So I did a little research on it. (I am a newbie.) What I did to Bios is to load the optimized setting. It turned out the vcore went to normal. However, I found the default RAM frequency was 1333MHz instead of 1600. So I changed it to 1600 in Bios with other setting default. Then the vcore went back to 1.3V. So I guess it is because cpu is overclocked to support 1600. Am I right? Does that mean i have to oc my cpu to make it support 1600?

Since I know few about the cpu and oc, I really wanna make everything clear. Forgive me if this question is too stupid. Thx.
We got identical cpu/MB/ram. Load XMP profile then manually set the Cpu voltage to 1.150v, see if it works.

That is scary. People build PC and are not informed and know the basics?
No offence. But I thought everyone reads, researches and study's what hardware he/she gets and who to check if this hardware is running properly.
Again no offence.
I am just surprised
