Yeah, it should be running at 2.6ghz, or 2600mhz.

Have you by any chance got some kind of stepping mechanism on to slow the processor down when idle?

No, it's right. If you use CPUz, it shows the clock speed as it varies. Idk why. the highest clock speed is the right one. It's at 2.67 GHz.

Intel Speed Step I would say, it reduces the multi / voltage when the cpu is idle.

Nice joe, I'm glad it all went together easily for you.

Once you get a little more familiar with it some oc results would be nice

Enjoy



EDIT: i7 is Nehalem, 8 core processors are here.

Fixed. It's not exactly 8 cores...4 w/ Hyper-Threading.

There are only quads available ATM. The 920 has four cores, two threads per core. That's why eight threads appear in the task manager.

Just remember, if you ever fall asleep at work, you were testing the drool resistance of your keyboard.
