    My Macbook Pro 2.4 GHz shows 2Ghz speed in Coreduotemp. Is that Ok?

    Or does it mean, that it was underclocked by any means? I'ven't done anything of the like to him...

    The software you are using wasn't designed for the Santa Rosa platform.

    The FSB for Santa Rosa has been upped from 667MHz to 800MHz. Your software is coded for CPU's with a 667MHz FSB.

    800MHz / 667MHz = 1.2 (the ratio difference)

    2GHz x 1.2 = 2.4GHz (the actual CPU speed).

    It's only reading the multiplier of the CPU (or am I wrong?). Like Kilamite said, before SR, the FSB was 667 MHz. 3x667 MHz = 2 GHz, but 3x800 MHz = 2.4 GHz. (The multiplier of your CPU is 3, but that was probably clear enough.)
