Solved Asrock extreme3 w/ 2500k overclock problem Tags: Overclocking ASrock Last response: January 3, 2012 1:39 AM in Overclocking Share slickpuss December 24, 2011 2:05:19 AM Any suggestions? I set my overclock settings in the bios and when I boot into windows and run cpu-z it running at 3.3ghz (even with a stress test). I can list my settings if needed, but I was wondering if someone knew perhaps something easy right off the bat that I was overlooking.

Im starting at 40x to keep it simple. m 0 l slickpuss December 24, 2011 2:26:39 AM Ok, so it looks like I had some older version of cpu-z that for some reason didnt read correctly. So so far so good. m 0 l Related resources OverClock Settings for i5 2500k on ASRock Extreme3 Gen3 - Forum ASRock Extreme3 Gen 3 & 2500k OC problems, need assist - Forum can ASRock 970 Extreme3 overclock an fx 6300 - Forum asrock 990fx extreme3 vs gigabyte ga-990fxa-ud3 for overclocking? - Forum Asrock 970 extreme3 Mid overclocks - Forum Can't find your answer ?
