    cpu speed or speeds ,like are you wanting to see what speed the cpu is running at a specific time or just the rated/actual speed of the cpu in a computer ,if the later then cpu-z would be good or speccy from the makers of Ccleaner .

    speccy is very good. If you do not want third party, just check task manager
