How would one such as myself go about increasing his CPU's GFlops? I'm just curious. Oh and When I check to see what my current amount of GFlops are it says my CPU is clocked @3.4GHz when I OC'd it to 4.3GHz. Is that normal?

"How would one such as myself go about increasing his CPU's GFlops" first off GigaFlops is not related to the CPU directly It is related to the system as a whole. Overclocking may help but not garinteed.
things that effect the number of flops a computer can run are:
CPU Cache Size
CPU Cache Speeds
Number of cores on the CPU
Number of threads
Architecture of the CPU (how many pipeline stages it has and how many logic blocks are super scaled)
Does the CPU have a hardware FPU built in?
Current Running Tasks
Hard Drive speed (to a lesser degree)
and so many more things
So how can you get more flops out of your computer? Well make sure you have no bottle necks, make sure your system has high end parts, make sure you have correct system drivers, and more.

Yes, it is normaly that it still reports the Stock speed, if you are unsure run Intel's PID software.
Overclocks never show, since it is the processor that rerports the speed as part of the name, not it's true speed.
