Intel i7 2600k Doesn't Show Correct Frequency In LinX

Hey guys, first post here!

I recently got a new motherboard, the Asrock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 and am OC'ing an Intel i7 2600k processor. On my last motherboard (Gigabyte Z68X-UD3H-B3), LinX would properly show the correct multiplier in the text logs it creates. It no longer does.

However, CPU-Z and Core Temp show the correct multiplier. Any ideas?

Does it matter?

Would I ask if it didn't? I find it strange that on my last board it was fine and now it's not.

Seriously, does it matter?

You know it is running at the correct frequency...

Ugh.

Okay let's say it doesn't matter. I'll rephrase my question:

Why is it that on the last board I had that LinX and Intel Burn Test (both Linpack obviously) showed the correct CPU frequency, and on the new one it does not?

If it is a txt log cant you just type in x.xghz and hit save?

I could do that. But why doesn't it report it correctly is my question.

Probably because its a small free program that doesnt jive with every piece of equipment out there because its just one dude that wrote it so we can test stability of systems. I'm gonna go out on a limb and think that writing information to an editable text file that you already know is somewhere at the bottom of his priority list.
