MSI G43 G3 will not overclock

Hello, I have a it 2500k, used to be running at 4.2 GHz fine, now it stopped running the CPU at the OC speed. In the BIOS, it says CPU Multiplier is set to 42 but when checking with Win 8, CPU-Z, Core Temp, all of them report the CPU as 3.3 GHz. I have disabled the protection and power saving features to no avail. Any idea?
