E8400 and CPU-Z: A Question

I got my E8400 today, very exciting day! :bounce:

Anyway, popped it in and everything seems okay. Initially the multiplier was at x8 in the BIOS, but I set it to x9 and it posted at 3 ghz, so I booted into Vista. Ran CPU-Z to double check that all was in order, only to find out that CPU-Z was showing that it was running at x6 multiplier and 2 ghz. This confused me, because the BIOS and Windows both show it as running at 3. What is wrong, if anything? I've posted some screen below that may help. Thanks!
