Whats going on here?

Also, how safe is it to use the tuner in easytune6? Option 1 overclocks to 3.2ghz.

If you want to see the CPU at the proper speed, simply load it. Use something like OCCT and you should see the frequency jump to 2.4GHz.

As for the gigabyte overclocker, I haven't used it but I suggest that if you want to overclock - do it properly in the BIOS.

its speedstep - 1600 divided by 6 gives you an FSB of 266.67and multiplied by 9 gives you clock speed of 2.4 GHz.

The multiplier will go up to 9 when you put load on the CPU
