So I have been reading up on overclocking as I would like to increase my new E8600 (just a bit from 3.3 to about 3.6 or so).
I installed "Core Temp" and "CPU-Z" but I have some numbers that might not be right. Both my system properties and CPU-Z show its a E8600 3.3GHz. However further down in the CPU-Z it shows Corespeed= 2000.1, multiplier 6, bus 333.4, rated FSB 1333.4. Shouldn't the core speed show 3.3 and the multiplier show like 10?
Also with the "Core temp" program it also shows E8600 3.3GHz but shows the frequency fluctuates every few seconds between 1999.9MHz (333.3 x 6) and 3333.03MHz (333.30 x 10).
I'm a newb and not sure what to make of this before I go any further. Thanks.
