i'm having some trouble wrapping my head around the values in tmonitor.. my cpu is set to 4.2Ghz at 1.50v(prolly could be lower but we're just ruling out a variable here as i haven't fine tuned it), the issue is that tmonitor shows things like my cpu hittin 800Mhz when c1e and c&q are off during prime95, and also that it never seems to hit 4.2Ghz fully loaded?? am i missing something and is there another tool i can use to read the values of my cpu cores speeds?
