    Default CPU Speeed Problem

    I just got a new computer that I built. I got a processor in a barebone deal from Tiger Direct and the processor was an Athlon 64 3700+, and the speed is suppose to be 2.4ghz, but for some reason when I benchmarked it I was only getting 1ghz o_0. In the system properties it says 2.4ghz, but the CPU Speed that I am getting is only 1ghz. Um does anyone know whats wrong? And if this is normal (not sure) anyone have any advice to max my processor speed?

    Windows may not correctly display the actual processor speed, there seems to be some sort of discrepency when it comes to AMD 64 processors. Use AMD Dashboard to get the correct readings. Download it here:

    doesn't the A64 have the ability to be throttled depending on load?
    It could also be because most benchmarking software was written with a 32 bit processor and now running the wider busses you could be getting innacurate results.

    BTW you don't really need to bump threads here Give it some time.. someone will reply to it.

    Also has there been much in the way of overclocking A64's?
