Why is it that whenever I successfully overclock and check the status of my overclocked frequency, it shows the result, then drops back to the stock frequency close to 1600?
Something I did wrong?

More about : frequency increase

yes ... actual overclock will show in CPU-Z if your system fulload or working .. in above 1600 is idle condition .. according your system

aaahhh don't worry you had good system .. You just do not understand why it is always to the 1600 ... already explained that the power management with intelspeed step / EIST is still active / auto and it 's good for PC !
look at intel : http://www.intel.com/cd/channel/reseller/asmo-na/eng/20...
