Now my problem is as follows. Ive overclocked the FSB to 875 which gives me 3.5gz. and changed the Mem to its timing 5-5-5-15 T2 at 1066 as it says on its sides.
I boot vista and everything is fine. Open up computer properties to find it says 3.5gzh, yet CPUz says its still running at 3.2ghz.
Ive disabled speed stepping and tried many combinations, are some CPU's locked?
Is this a human error (of which i expect) or CPUz?
I'd trust CPUZ. However, make sure you have the latest version. Remember that sometimes speedstep isn't turned off. Also, make sure you've done the basics: run memtest86+ through at least a couple of complete passes w/o errors, and then stress-tested with something like Orthos. Your CPU and chipset are not known for being big overclockers, so perhaps your BIOS is finding problems and just reverting to a "safe" default upon bootup.
