    has any one seen their processor go above 1.6GHz?

    the specs for "Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-720QM Quad Core processor (1.6GHz, 6MB L3 Cache) with Turbo Boost up to 2.8 GHz"

    say turbo boost, but i have not seen mine go above 1.6.

    there is no "speedstep" in the bios

    am i missing something?

    Nevermind - Intels desktop gadget is reporting it going above 1.6.
    But the system monitor I have does not report the turbo boost.

    So the SwSetup directory is really all you need for the drivers and the software apps, correct?

    Guys, like Rhy, I stay away from the betas. Your call though. This driver, 195.62, is working very well.

    Groz, I use a program mentioned in this forum and it loads in the sidebar. I think it's from Intel. I have seen my processor jump over 2 GHz numerous times already.

    another quick question, since you cannot buy the blu-ray drive from hp anymore with this model would this drive be ok to purchase from ebay|| it is listed for a dv7 but not sure if that would still work with the dv7t

    ebay drive

    and if you dont wanna load up ebay i pulled this info from the listing
    The Model number is CT10L. HP P/N 459175-4C0 and it is a sata drive!!

    I don't see why not. The quick ship models of the dv8 and dv7 still have the blu Ray drive and from what it looks like the drive is the same as my dv7-1270 blu Ray drive just different bezel
