Very Frustrated with Processor - Please help

So I took my E6700(ES) out to test another E6700(ES) and since both are now showing up with smaller multipliers. The multiplier is 6 instead of 10. Even with the processor that worked I can't get it back to 2.66Ghz (multiplier by 10). But it's weird. CPU-Z tells me 1.6Ghz while Windows "My Computer"...

Re: I've been thinking the same...

Do you think it's worth it to go through the trouble of returning this mobo and getting a 680i ? The problem is that Intel's BIOS is unlike what I"m used to and I've had a laptop for the past year so I'm rusty tweaking desktops. Currently my settings are 200 Mhz 667Mhz 4 4 4 12 and it results in a ...

I got one sitting here and if you are willing to take some pictures and post your results up here on the forums I'll send it to you the Accelero X2 free of charge.

If you want to go more in-depth on it I'd be willing to post your results on the main page.
Is this still valid?
