ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 Issue

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I've started overclocking an i7 2700k with this board.

I've come across an interesting issue.

In the BIOS, I've set the multiplier to 47 (for 4.7GHz), but when I'm testing with p95, both CoreTemp and CPU-Z tell me that the processor is only running at 4.2 Ghz at 100% load.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
i luv core i7s!

Set the core current to 300 as well as the turbo boost current.
The motherboard is trying to keep the power usage down.
