download CPU-Z and check your cpu frequency. If you are running below the desired frequency, go to the bios. While in the bios, go to frequency settings, then go to core features or whatever its called. Turn off the turbo mode. 

Just because this site doesn't have spell-check doesn't mean you need to type like you're 12.

Why not benchmark your overclock with ya know, Cinebench, or a real benchmarking tool to see performance. Not fraps in Startcraft 2..


Well one thing could be that fraps does use your cpu to measure anything thus lowering CPU performance. However if you were using fraps before to measure the performance then that makes this argument invalid.
