Aww scratch that(edit). Yea, maybe your processor is overclocked. Does anyone else use your computer?

I thought the stock clock speed was suppose to be at 2.2GHz? Also I don't think processors normally overclock spontaneously so for that reason I would bet that I am correct in my previous statement.

I think het meant the BIOS. When you reboot the PC, it will usually ask you on the bottom of the screen telling you to hit the "Del" key to access BIOS menus. You should find something in there telling you what your FSB is.
