Default Issue With CPU Clock Speed.

I haven't OC'ed my Pentium D Smithfeild 805 yet but I'm a bit concerned with a weird statistic being displayed in BIOS/POST screen (It's the one with "america megatrend with the red triangle logo thingy") The screen displays my CPU as being 2.8GHZ but CPU-Z says its 2.66 GHZ. I'm a bit confused. Past experiences tell me to believe the screen and not CPU-Z. Should I be concerned or has it been OC'ed it without my knowledge =P.

Thanks.

I don't know why it's displaying 2.8GHz when it's actually supposed to run at 2.66GHz. It's ok to overclock though.

OK now CPU-Z is displaying 2.8 GHZ but...I Haven't done anything to overclock...kinda weird. Anyone know why it became 2.8 without me doing anything to it?

Do you have like an auto-overclocking option on?

None that a know of but i did have this Asus program called AI booster...had some overclocking options but i didn't do anything with it really...I dunno if that has something to do with it but I uninstalled earlier...eh I guess its good that it's been overclocked already. I didn't have to do a THING!

Yea that's an auto overclocking program. After you uninstalled it, is your CPU reading 2.66GHz?

Check your bios FSB and multiplier settings. Then Google your processor to see what they should be.

I should be modifying these?
It's a Pentium D 805 from that toms hardware article. I read about overclocking but I'm kinda scared to do it because of the "might damage processor" warnings. I'm not a rich person just got the new comp cause of my outstanding grades =p. Will modifying these harm my computer? Maybe i should just leave it be. All I've noticed really are a bit hotter Idle temps at around 43-47 Celcius.

Edit: My Multiplier is x 20.0
FSB is 140.3
CPU Speed is 2806.3
My Memory is DDR2 Corsair 2x 512Mb 4.0-4-4-12<----(Not shure if I even did this right kinda new to this stuff)

well the FSB is definitely overclocked. there are guides to overclocking on this forum if you read them then ask questions you will probably get more questions as many people will pass over your post if you want to know things that are explained elsewhere
