I seem to get stuck on multiplier of 41... I set it to 43 in my bios (EUFI BIOS, Asus P8Z77 V-Pro) And for some reason when i boot and run Prime 95 and CPU-Z it tells me im only reaching 4.1 GHz. (100.0 x 41) My heat never reaches above 64 C either. I have a Liquid cooler and its extremely efficient. What am i missing?

Hi I have the same mobo as you, sometimes the Bios settings get stuck and I need to clear CMOS to reset them to stock or the settings will not change no matter what.

In the motherboard manual it will tell you how to clear CMOS, leave the jumper in place for at least 5 mins, if its still stuck leave it again for 20mins and that should do it :) 

EDIT: Forgot to mention, you can save your OC profile before so you wont lose all your settings, far right tab in the BIOS if you don't know.
