I would be shocked if it is a seating issue that is hiding 2 cores from the OS.
My money is on a clean Windows install. It sounds like you moved the install over, and sometimes when swapping CPU's...you just gotta re-install.
Someone should make odds and take bets on what the solution is
My System Specs
Intel i5 660 - Clarkbar Power
4 x 4GB GSkill & OCZ mixing and matching
X800 GTO old school passive power
Who cares about anything else, I have a 10GB RAM drive.
Win 7 x64
