System Properties will show you two things for CPU speed:

- the first is the CPU's 'identifier string', which is hard-coded into the CPU's microarchitecture (designed to show the CPU's optimal speed)
- the second is the speed that the CPU is actually running at

For example, on my System Properties window:

Intel Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz 3.11GHz

This shows that the CPU is designed to run at 2.4GHz by default. It also shows that I am running the CPU overclocked at 3.11GHz.

For a more accurate reading, you can download CPU-Z from http://www.cpuid.com which will tell you the CPU's current clock speed, along with other useful information.

You need to check that the motherboard you're using is capable of running the CPU at 3.66GHz.

On the system properties you will able to check your processor speed and your memory, it is possible that the other description is referring to your memory or Ram.

You can use other program like aida32 to check your computer spec or you can try the steps below.

To check the CPU speed, from the Start menu, select Run... , then enter msinfo32 .

You can also type DXDIAG then enter.

I have a mainboard of model D845GVAD2------------------------AAC18931-104. It has already intall the Intel celeron processor of 1.8GHz. Now I want to upgrade my processor. So what high frequency processor...


Hello,
The Intel® Desktop Board D845GVAD2 supports a single Pentium® 4 processor with a system bus frequency of 400 MHz or 533 MHz, or a single Celeron® processor with a system bus frequency of 400 MHz.

So you can install upto 3.06 GHz 533 MHz(cache memory) processor and also update the ram 2 GB 400 mhz.
Dont install Prescott processor.
Hope it will help you.

I am having celeron processor with 256 RAM and 40GB HDD Can i install Windows 7 or Vista over this processor


Well, Vista and Windows 7 require at least 1GB of system RAM to run, If I were you I'd think about upgrading with more memory. Otherwise you will experience a very slow PC, the RAM problem will then slow down your CPU and you'll end up with a big mess.

2 ghz processor running at 220 mhz


Hi,

Have you tried right clicking on the desktop (opening Display Properties), clicking on Screen Saver tab, Clicking the Power button, and setting the power schemes to Home/Office Desk? If its set on laptop it will reduce the processor speed when running on battery. I have noticed that even with it plugged in that some times it will run at half processor speed. Try that out.

Have a great day,
Armymason

This is the SpeedStep technology feature of your processor. It will speed back up to 1.7 GHz when it is needed. Slowing down the processor saves battery life.
