Does EMIII show the correct CPU speeds?


I have an XP2000+, very slightly overclocked to 1.7Ghz. EMIII says that it's at 1863 mhz though. Is it showing something else, or does it just not read speeds correctly?

EM sometimes mis-reads the speed...
I have a new dll that will show the correct speeds no matter what.
I just haven't changed out the dll's yet.

Huh, EM doesn't seem to read ANY speeds on any of my
machines. Am I missing a setting or something?

Try this from the instructions page ..http://home.attbi.com/~wxdude1/emsite/help/

"Third, while this step isnít necessary and you can do it or not, you might want this information displayed in the EM window. Find the Speed.exe file in the folder you unzipped EM into. Copy the Speed.exe file and the EMGetCPUinf.dll file to the FAH folder. Double-click the Speed program. A file will be created called "speed.emd" which will contain the type of processor you have and its speed. This program works on most CPUís, but if it doesnít work on yours donít worry about it. The new AMD XP processors donít seem to be seen correctly, and it will not identify systems with Dual CPUís installed. Other than that it should correctly recognize your CPU and its speed. You can edit this file inside EM later so donít worry about it now."

Huh, sounds like too much work for something that doesn't work.

I've got 11 machines here, all different, many OC'd... EM shows all their speeds correctly...
Sometimes it doesn't work correctly.
