I was mainly wondering if anyone could tell me if my processor is set at the right settings to run at its best. I ran CPUID and i am not really sure at what I am looking at. Here is a screenshot of CPUID and also of WCPUID Any help is appreciated

well is there any reason why it shouldnt be? its an older CPU but at a glance I dont see any problems. is the system not running stable, experiencing problems, exactly what makes you believe its not?

I partially believe that it was faster when i got it. I had a problem with start up and had to get someone to reinstall the BIOs for me. And i was wondering if that when doing that, would my front bus speed have gotten changed, as I noticed that it was set at the lowest setting possible. I am thinking about getting some thermal paste, and taking off the heat sink later today to find out what CPU chip I have

you could try going into the bios and loading optimized defaults and seeing what happens though typically if the correct BIOS was installed it should already default to the proper settings.

It looks like your FSB is at 100 instead of 200. Bartons never ran at that low a frequency. (Mobiles with speedstep excepted).
