</div>Yes sir.<br />
<br />
I've seen people around talking about installing drivers to get full advantage of their dualcore, so I was wondering. This is my first one. <img src="/images/smilies/cool.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Cool" class="inlineimg" /> Trying to get everything set up, so I can start the overclock <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />

There is a Dual core patch and Tweak you may need to perform found here :<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">Get Windows to recognize your L2 cache on your CPU properly<br><br>
( Warning: Please back-up your registry before performing this step )<br><br>
By default windows sets the L2 cache of your AMD to zero...yes...0<br><br>
Here's how to get it runnin.<br><br>
Go to ''Start>run'' (Windows key + R) then type in "Regedit"<br>
(regedit32 for advanced users as it provides a few more strings to play with)<br><br>
Once your here go to ''HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SYSTEM\\CurrentControlSet\\C ont ro l\\Session Manager\\Memory Management\\SecondLevelDataCache''<br><br>
Now ''Right-click'' and choose modify...select decimal and enter the value of your L2 cache on your CPU...128,256,512...ETC!!!!<br><br>
Now restart your machine ...and while you may not notice dramatic effects Overclockers...most processes and applications should be a little quicker.<br><br>
This step is By ''PROBN4LYFE''</td>
