  1. You probably have Gigabyte's C.I.A. (CPU Intilligence Accelerator) enabled in the BIOS it changes the multiplier when cpu isnt under strain to lower temps etc etc.

    Simply go into the bios then check advanced bios settings section and you should see it there.
  2. Look for "C1E" in the BIOS...this controls the throttling of the CPU.
  3. hey thanks guys for the info i got it at 3.6 but for some reason it seems faster wen running at stock and a usage meter shows my ram constantly at like 34% ne ideas???
