So I recently decided to overclock my Core i5-2300 to see what I could get out of it. I was able to get it up 3.553 Ghz without any issues. Now here comes my concern (not really a concern, more or less just a bother) When I went in to check my CPU clock speed in Windows 7, it says it's clocked in at 2.93 Ghz. When I downloaded CPU-Z, it showed me the right speeds that I had set in the UEFI. My question is should I be concerned at all that my clock speed is being read as lower than what I set according to what Windows is telling me or just listen to what CPU-Z is saying?

Just listen to cpu-z Win 7 often reports the speeds incorrectly once they have been overclocked. It might pick up the correct speed if you run windows experience thing again but even if it doesn't honestly don't worry about it at all.
