HWMonitor does not recognize OC, neither does BIOS. But BiOS settings show the OC.

So basically, HWMonitor and the monitor in my BiOS don't recognize my 4.1GHz OC, and both of them just show 4 GHz. Am I doing anything wrong? When I put 41 or 42 in the setting, save and reboot, it just stays at 4 GHz explanation anyone?

    Right, I thought 1 GHz was the multiplier. Anyway, even if it isn't k, I was still able to OC to 41? How come? Now I cant?
