Asrock extreme3 w/ 2500k overclock problem
Dec 24, 2011, 2:05 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.

Oh yea, I should mention that when I return to the bios, it reads on the first tab like the OC is working. Im starting at 40x to keep it simple.

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.

haha glad that you found out what the problem was.
I have an Asrock Extreme3 Gen3 coupled with a 2500k @ 4.5ghz right. So, we are running a similar setup.
