MSI Z77A-G45 Won't OC past 3.4ghz

I overclocked as per Mrface's tutorial because he has a MSI board too, so the terminology and placement of the options is the same. After setting everything up, I went and ram Prime and my frequency is stuck at 3400mhz. I set my multiplier at x39. At POST it shows 3900mhz, but when I pull up CPU-Z it shows only 3400mhz under load. HELP!!!

My system:
i5 3570K
MSI Z77A-G45
2X4gb DDR1600 Vengeance Blue
Antec 850W
