Part of the i5-2500k club now

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
So I got my package today.




Got it all installed and running. Got a single beep on my first POST and it was music to my ears. Played with it some and it's stable at stock speeds but that's not a surprise.

This is where the weird stuff begins.
I opened CPU-Z to look at my diagnostics and this is what I see.



Also, no matter what I do in the BIOS I cannot get it to overclock any higher than that 3399.7 that you see in the picture.
Maybe I'm missing a setting in the BIOS but I was watching a newegg video where they used my motherboard and I followed the directions very closely and still had no luck.

o.O that is not what your CPU-Z is suppose to look like.

It should be like this:


Try doing a BIOS update and updating CPU-Z?

Make sure to run CPUZ as an administrator!

I actually just downloaded the new BIOS update and am about to install. I'll get the updated version of CPU-Z also.

What ended up fixing it?

The CPU-Z problem was it was an old version and I updated it.

I updated the BIOS and re did all the settings to overclock. It BSoD'ed a few times so I checked the error codes on my iTouch and I fixed the problem and it booted showing the 4645.7 clock speed.
