Asus P8P67 + SB 2500K = Won't OC?

I'm fairly new to the new BIOS that has come out so maybe that is the problem, not sure.

Anyway, setup:

Asus P8P67 Deluxe
SB 2.5K
eVGA 470 SC
2X Spinpoint F3's raid 0
Corsair Vengeance 8G (2x4GB)

When I go into the BIOS and set it to Turbo or even some random OC setting, windows does NOT reflect the change.
No matter what I try Windows/CpuZ constantly reports the stock speed.

And what is the deal with the low core speed? Hrm.

Here is some screens of cpuz and I'm really confused with the memory speeds, not sure why that XMP (or what it is) is reporting higher mhz on that...

Any help would be greatly appreciated![/imgAn

  1. As far as I can tell, the high-end Asus p8p67 boards drops the multiplier to 16 when the cpu is idle. Try running a cpu benchmark program and watch the CPU-Z results. I have 2500k+p8p67 pro combo, and I was getting it to peak at 4.3 ghz under load just using the autotune feature.
  2. I just noticed that a bit ago running some Passmark benchs. It lowers the CPU while idle and then ramps it up while under load. Woot! Now if Asus would update the BIOS on this board it'll be more stable. Ug, lol :P
  3. If you bothered to read your manual you would know why the core speed is low.

    cpu-z is not going to show the correct speed if the cpu is not being stressed.
