    Another alternative is you could go into your BIOS and see if it lets you change the multiplier :) Lots of different ways to tell.

    I'm going to go with the 'if you aren't sure then you've got the non-K version of the chip' method.

    Not exactly scientific, but I'd be almost certainly right.
