Hello,
I have a Gigabyte P55-UD4P mobo and an i5 750 chip. In the bios it shows the CPU multiplier at 16x. Shouldn't it be 20x ? If I try to change it I get a box telling me to input a DEC number.

Try flashing BIOS.
Did the trick for me

Good luck

update: I'm still weary about flashing the bios, so I've been tinkering with settings and I started up EasyTune6, a program that came with my motherboard. Also to verify things a bit I installed CPU-Z. Now in EasyTune6 there is a Quick Boost feature that I haven't used before and thought I would give it a try. Quick Boost has 3 levels and I started with level 1. This would appear to raise the Bclk from 133 to 140, and the core speed from 2.66 to 2.80Ghz. So what I got was a Bclk of 140, a core speed of 3.35Ghz, and a multiplier of 24x, as shown in cpu-z.
So I went back into the bios and I still could not change the multiplier or the Bclk. Are there other settings in the bios that will free up the multiplier and Bclk ? Why can I change those settings in a Windows program and not in the bios ?
Any thoughts.

I am officially a noob.. at overclocking anyway. In the bios, I would select the cpu clock ratio and press enter, instead of page up or down to change the value.

on a different note, has anyone seen core speed and bclk differences when using cpu-z and other programs, as in they show different values? I have cpu-z and easytune6 up and they show different values for the same thing.
