Default Why does XP 32bit have wrong OC display?

You guys know when you right clicks + properties on XP and it shows the CPU speed, ram and such.

To get a higher OC i have set the muti for my E2180 to 9x and FSB to 355 for an OC of 3.195ghz. When i open real temps + CPUZ its got the correct reading. But when i right click on my computer's properties its saying CPU speed is at 3.55ghz

all other setting on bios disable on the E2180 except for the muti set to 9x

I wouldn't worry too much about what XP is detecting. As long as the clocks are working right (CPU-Z) thats all that matters.
