Hi, I have a Core i7 950 Bloomfield running at stock speeds. I was checking my temperatures with HWMonitor when i noticed that my CPU was boosting to 5.9 ghz on core 0 and 3.9 on core 2, with a solid 3.4 on 1 and 3. Is this a misreading? I also would like some ram help. I have a Gigabyte GA-x58a-UD3R, and my ram is detected within windows as a 400 MHz set, and as unknown RAM. Thanks!
 


400mhz on the RAM is normal. The reason why it says 400mhz is because of something called Quad Pumping.... Multiply that 400mhz x 4 (hence quad in quad pumped) and you get your rated memory speed.
