    My iMac is being really flakey so I ran the Apple hardware test utility. It's reported at 3.60 GHz ! Doesn't exactly fill me with confidence for the accuracy of the utility... (it's 3.06 under 'About This Mac')

    I wonder, how about loading up a live linux CD/DVD and seeing what it reports back as your CPU?

    On the other hand, Apple Care.

    Probably just an issue with the Hardware Test not being programed to recognize that specific CPU's bus/multiplier combo.
