Indiana Aug 8, 2012 #1 Recently parsing through a dump file which produced this Code: [CPU Information] ~MHz = REG_DWORD 3392 Component Information = REG_BINARY 0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0 Configuration Data = REG_FULL_RESOURCE_DESCRIPTOR ff,ff,ff,ff,ff,ff,ff,ff,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0 Identifier = REG_SZ Intel64 Family 6 Model 58 Stepping 9 ProcessorNameString = REG_SZ Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3570K CPU @ 3.40GHz Update Signature = REG_BINARY 0,0,0,0,10,0,0,0 Update Status = REG_DWORD 2 VendorIdentifier = REG_SZ GenuineIntel MSR8B = REG_QWORD 1000000000 Machine ID Information [From Smbios 2.7, DMIVersion 39, Size=3079] BiosMajorRelease = 4 BiosMinorRelease = 6 BiosVendor = American Megatrends Inc.

Can anyone tell me what I am looking at here and what might account for the incredible disparity between the second set of those two values.
