Default Overclocking

If you overclock a processor, when you check your system's stats, does it show the speed of the processor that you bought or the speed that you overclocked?

it would show the speed of your overclock in Mhz or identification name , example "XP2500+". to find what processor to have on an AMD XP CPU you would look at the OPN number and check it with AMD's OPN chart.

I don't overclock, but my boot display shows both the processor name (Athlon XP 1800+) and the clock speed (1526 Mhz), so I would assume that if I overclock it, it would show the name and overclocked speed.
