    A while ago I overclocked my Pentium D 2.66GHz to 3.2GHz, the Pentium D is a dual core so when I looked at my system settings I see that it shows one processor at 3.2GHz and another still at 2.66GHz



    I overclocked my machine using the on board overclocking tool that comes with my (ASUS P5ND2 Sli) motherboard's BIOS

    How can I get the other processor to get up to 3.2GHz as well?

    No, It shows the original clock, and then its ACTUAL clock. You have an original clock speed of 2.66, and an actual running speed of 3.2 ghz.

    I dont think its possible to overclock a single core. You overclock the entire thing or you dont.

    When you change the FSB and voltage core you affect both cores.

    I use CPU-Z to check my CPU/memory settings and timings. It will show both cores.

    It's freeware and a simple Google search will help you find it.

    Thanks, I've used CPU-Z before and it said 3.2GHz, but this kinda confused me, thanks for the help
