Ah, see, that's why i was complaining in the first place! Because i've done comparisons between those who were hitting 3.7 and my own clocks and the performance was difference, hence why i was asking for an overclocking software (since the BIOS edit is full of crap). I only stated 3.7 in my user CP coz in the bios the bus speed is at 370 with a multiplier of 10, yet it feels nothing of the sort. and thanks tommyk, currently trying to get clockgen to figure out the most stable clocks. I am running water-cooling on the CPU btw.
