    I used CPU-Z to check my CPU's stats and it says that its clock was 2500Mhz [200x12.5]

    Why is this weird? Because according to its BIOS it should have a base clock of 200Mhz and a mulitplier of 17 what equals 3.4Ghz. This is what the control panel of Windows 7 says as well.

    So, how do I achieve this target clock?


    P.S. I checked some other sites where mostly mobile users are having this issue. My computer is a custom build as desktop pc though. It runs fine most of the time but sometimes I wonder why things take so long. Thanks for tips.

    For some reason the clock is at 200Mhz*17 now just as it should be.
    I cannot tell if this issue is solved because it might reoccur and I don't know why it is fine suddenly.

    I'll come back when I encounter this situation again.

    I was just talking with a friend.....and suggested that the CPU boost might be kicking in. Does your CPU have an automatic boost? What CPU do you have? Can you post your system specs as detailed as possible.
