CUPID right or not? Windows 7 Confusion.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Ok well this has been bugging me a long time. When i first got this motherboard long time ago i bought some ram and set XMP to 1600mhz cuz that's what the ram is stated at and i'm now mild overclocked running 289ghz

How come my system page of Windows 7 shows me 2.40 instead?

Can anyone explain me if this is a Windows 7 bug or did i really have a little mistake with my overclock? I didn't overclock anything but i set the ram to 1600mhz the first day i built this motherboard long time ago.

I wonder if this is just a Win 7 bug? Do you guys get it too? Here's pics.

Windows only shows stock speeds. CPU-Z is right and you ARE overclocked.

As with your ram, it's called DDR3 or double data rate 3 which means the actual speed is double what the XMP shows.

Well thank you that really clarifies my questions. I learned something here. I feel like a newb all over again. How embarassing. I blame gaming rofl. So then why is Windows 7 saying that anyways? Is it reading wrong because it's showing stock settings? Why 2.4 and not the other way around?

I wish windows shows the actual frequency. It just takes the stock settings from the processor directly and keeps that info stored instead of updating it realtime.

Maybe it only correctly reads some CPUs and not others?

See, that's interesting how yours shows accurately and not mine. I find it weird lol. I wonder if there is a Microsoft forum about this somewhere. I'd have to google it.

Could be an AMD thing, but I have been using intel for yrs and it always shows stock for some reason. Maybe taking the cpu out and putting it back in changes it? You always trust cpu-z though
