In the BIOS it says I need to change the multiplier in my OS.
And in my OS there is no option to do so.
Many of the ASUS products and the ASUS manuals have poor English. So it is not saying that you have to adjust it in the OS, but it's just saying that you can if you want to.
However, I personally recommend uninstalling ASUS Ai Suite II. I have found it to be useless. :/

Please go to the Boot menu under BIOS, manually set Option ROM Messages to "Keep Current".
For me, I stopped it by disabling the Marvell controller in Advanced > Onboard Devices Configuration. I also disabled the JMB controller and I also disabled Full Screen Logo which is in the Boot tab.
I do recommend manually setting your memory. Here's the best way to find out what your best specs are that should be absolutely 100% stable:
Check this part of your copy of CPU-Z (this one is mine):
Also, if you have 2 sticks, then they have to be in the blue slots. That's why my screenshot is on Slot #2.

I'm more worried about it on load. 4326.9Mhz, @ x42, is this normal? I did not do any overclocks of anything, but i did select performance in BIOS setup. That's about it.
My temperatures range from about 40C to 60C+, all while still in desktop, surfing the net, etc. Like 1 minute ago it was 40C and now its 55C. Then it will go down again later. I am using the stock cooler and i am very sure it was installed properly and everything.
Speccy reports 70C when i am playing Age of Empires online. When i close it, it goes down to 50+ in an almost instant. When i was in BIOS just now, it was 65C. I set all my fan speed to turbo instead of standard.
What's the reason for the high clock speed reported in CPUZ and Speccy, as well as the crazy temp changes?
The reason for the higher speed is because you chose Performance in the UEFI. This is overclocking for novices (and for people who are not on Overclock.net).
The temps are because you're using the Stock cooling. Fortunately, these temps are very safe. Unfortunately, I have absolutely no clue whatsoever if these temps can be considered normal for stock cooling with this automatic overclock that your motherboard has achieved. Although if I were to guess, then I would say that it sounds to me like the stock cooler is loose. So check it: if you can wobble or wiggle it, then it's way too loose. If it feels kinda like it's welded to the board, then maybe these temps are normal after all. So just check it and see what you got.

Anyway, the story was, i initially put my CM Hyper212+ on my mobo. Then it couldn't work. After that, i replaced the mobo but used the stock cooler because i was lazy to go through all that trouble to put on the cooler, then if the board doesnt work, take it off again, you know.
So i tested it bare, it worked, then i installed everything in the case, and here i am lazy to remove everything and put the cooler back on.
Hmm, after setting all my fans to turbo mode in BIOS, i get promising temps. Just below 50C. But whats up with my high clock speeds?
When you install the Hyper 212 Plus, you will have to apply extra Thermal Interface Material in between the heatpipes like this (that is, before you apply any more past in addition to this):
So the idea is to fill these gaps between the pipes first. After that, you just apply paste to the CPU (or even to the heatsink - it's up to you) as normal because once you fill these gaps, it's like you have converted it into a flat-based heatsink, more or less. That means when you're done filling the gaps, you're free to continue on by applying paste to either the CPU or to the heatsink just as though it is a flat-based version.
If you don't do this, then your temps will be much higher than expected for the Hyper 212 Plus.Edited by TwoCables - 10/15/11 at 11:56pm
