    I went from a athlon 3200+ s939... to a AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ on my Neo2 Platinum mobo.

    When i go to my computer and properties to see the specs its coming up with this.

    I tried to run the live update shit that came with the mobo to update my bios and it said it was the highest. Though i have found one thats higher i don't have a floppy drive... so it makes it kind of hard to flash the bios.

    I ran CPU-Z and got this.

    So by looking at CPU-Z is it working fully? Dual core and all? I am not 100% sure can anyone tell me? I don't really care if its not showing in properties i'd just like to know if its working fully thanks..

    I would probably say no...

    I ran CPU-Z on my Core Duo Macbook and it says 2 for Cores and Threads at the bottom.

    Another way to check is hit Ctrl+Alt+Del and look at the Performance tab. There should be two windows under CPU Usage History.
