    Hello, let me ask a noob question: I have a core i5 750 processor, according with intel it has 4x256kB on L2 cache, but some diagnostic programs like Sissoft Sandra lite (any version) or core temp, shows on system info this 2x256kB (2 threads sharing), other programs like: cpu-z, speecy, hwinfo...shows the following information 4x256kB....so whats wrong here? i have a fake CPU (i don't think so)?

    Wrong detection by the program, the processor is quad core so will be 4 x whatever. Trust an updated CPUz

    I was thinking the same thing, but it's always good to have another opinion....
