    It does. Look on the bottom right, where it says "Cores: 2".

    If you're talking about the drop-down box, I believe with the newer versions they dont show it.

    You guys need to teach me how to OC. :)
    Would you think I will be able to reach those same speeds on Gigabyte DS3 3.3? Oh, on stock cooling.

    As for the cores, yes that's how it shows up. I have the same version and at first I thought of the same exact thing you did; then looked around and noticed the 2 cores.

    Do you have the E6300/E6320? 3.3Ghz might be pushing it, but the DS3 is a great overclocking motherboard, you might be able to hit 3.2-3.4Ghz.

    Yea e6300. As yours. Atleast 3.0? I was just thinking of copying your setup and just bringing it up to 3.0... what do you think?

    I have a sense of how to oc it, but I just have no clue when to change the multiplier, voltage, etc.

    I had an E6300, eVGA 680i, 2GB Patriot DDR2-667, and a 320GB HD.

    I read a guide online which told me what settings to disable and what voltages to raise, which helped me reach 3.2Ghz.

    Seems that CPU is underclocked, the multiplier has defaulted to 6 instead of 7?!
