Phenom 955 drops multiplier only when running 3dmark 06

I'm pretty well versed in overclocking and I have my 955 sitting @ 3.7ghz with a 18x multiplier @1.4v
runs everything fine. Temps are fine other benchmarks and stability test run great. My only issue is when I start up 3dmark06 the multiplier suddenly drops to 16x. Cool and quiet is off in the bios. C1E is off too.
HELP

    Sorry,
    The mobo is a m3a78-em. Running 2x2GB mushkin 800mhz and 2x1GB OCZ 800MHZ
  2. Have you updated your bios since installing your CPU?
  3. Bios is at the newest revision. But that was done a month ago, so not a recent change at all.
  4. are you using cpu-z to check this?

    everest tells me that my multiplier is at 10.5 when at load, but when i open cpu-z, it shows the correct 13.0
  5. Yes using cpu-z and core temp to verify the multiplier change.
