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

Have you updated your bios since installing your CPU?

Bios is at the newest revision. But that was done a month ago, so not a recent change at all.

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

Yes using cpu-z and core temp to verify the multiplier change.
