Win7 64 bit
Asus g41 motherboard
e7500 CPU

i bought this pc a few days ago, and today i wanted to OC the cpu, anyway i did oc, it entered the blue screen, so it didnt go well and i changed the bios settings to default.
then to check if everything was fine, i download CPU-Z (i didnt have this program before)
and in the program at Core Speed it sais 1600 mhz, that is suppost to be at 2933 mhz.
what the problem?
(btw if i stare at the numbers for a while, it changes once in a few mins to 2933 mhz for about 3 seconds, then it goes back to 1600 mhz)
