    Is this allright?

    Just asking if this seems ok:

    Processor #1 Vendor: GenuineIntel
    Processor #1 Name: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X3220 @ 2.40GHz
    Processor #1 speed: 1600.000 MHz
    Processor #1 cache size: 4096 KB

    CPU is currently running at 1.6GHz, 800MHz under rating...

    Its intel speedstep in action. Its perfectly normal and the system will make the CPU go faster when load is placed on it. Alternativly you can ask the DC to disabled speed step support in the BIOS

    I wouldn't be concerned as Speed Step is to help save on power but once a load is placed on it, the processor will kick into the maximum speed. Less power usage when unneeded means more savings on power for the host and it's passed on to the customer. I am sure they wouldn't have a problem disabling it for you though. They will need to turn off the machine as the feature is located in the BIOS.
