Ok I haven't built a computer in awhile, just put together my new board, and im having some issues, OT is always the first place to come for me... first here are a few screens of my major problem, and some double checks from cpu-z NO idea why I can't get my processor to show up in system properties, and some games say things like " processor running at 0.0ghz" on start up... though tested seems to be fine... its still really really strange, and I havent come across any way to fix this. other than that, I am not an overclocker, but I want to know my system is running stock the way it should be... should i be running my ram in duel channel? does it matter" this ram is supposed to be PC2 8500 ... but as you see, it says 6500?? Processor is supposed to be duel core @ 3ghz... yet as you see, core0 is running at ghz... is this right? Its been a long time since i built a computer, any help on any of these issues, as well as the OK on how my ram/proc is running would be nice... the major thing im hating is my processor not showing up in system properties.
