So I got back into my bios after clearing the cmos and put everything on the settings from the guide. I have the multiplier set to 40 and when I do the stress test the bus MHz fluctuates between 98.5 and 102 pretty consistently. Also the multiplier goes between 37 and 39 alot even though its set to 40. Here are the screen shots of the bios settings I'm using for this.

OC Tweaker top (CPU)


OC Tweaker bottom (voltage)



DRAM config top



DRAM config bottom



CPU Advanced configuration:



Edit I just noticed my no execute memory protection was turned off... gonna fix that now.

I am stumped, I don't see anything that would cause you base clock to jump around. maybe a bios update is in order? hopefully someone a little smarter than me will come along and give you the magic bullet.

I'm gonna try updating the bios and see what happens. Any tips for this? My first time doing it.

there are a couple ways to do it. flashing from a thumb drive is the safest and easiest, your motherboard might have a network update tool in bios, then there is the worst option of flashing from within windows...Highly advise the first method...very slim chance of a bad flash.

I am stumped, I don't see anything that would cause you base clock to jump around. maybe a bios update is in order? hopefully someone a little smarter than me will come along and give you the magic bullet.

On the very first page of the BIOS, or in CPU-Z Mainboard section, it will tell you your current BIOS version.

If it isn't 2.30 then download this. Unzip it, place it on a FAT32 formatted flashdrive. Restart computer and spam F6 until it shows a Instant Flash screen and select the 2.30 BIOS and flash it.

The bus speed normally should not fluctuate( except the occasional .01 difference) but I don't have your board.
Make sure you are running the latest CPU-Z which can be downloaded here.

The multiplier can fluctuate due to it being on Offset mode which will drop the voltages / speed if the mobo deems it necessary to do so.

If you use Fixed mode, then it should stay at the set speed and voltage all the time.
(Although I rarely use Fixed mode mode, so I could be wrong.)

His board has only the option of an Instant Flash update (the flashdrive method).

Some boards, like his, do not have Windows or Network flashes.

Also, I would like to point out that I have flashed loads of BIOSes using Windows method with no fault.

Usually the only problem occurs when the PC is shutdown during the flashing period, which can brick it due it having to erase the previous BIOS first (however some boards have the original BIOS it came with for a permanent backup to avoid bricking the mobo). This issue can occur with any BIOS flash method.

Fixed mode only effects vcore, not multi. His multi still bounces around with fixed and speedstep on

Speedstep should be off, otherwise it will reduce the speed as it deems necessary.

I downloaded the latest CPU Z and it still showed the multiplier lowering. I'm gonna flash the bios and see what that does and report back.

edit: I'm using offset mode so I thought that the multiplier would vary only not under load. IOW if prime95 or some heavy duty application is running, then the multiplier would stay at max even with speedstep on.

I haven't tested fixed mode out yet to see if the multi bounces.

Your bios looks good. Where are you seeing the CPU clock to 5.1ghz? CPU-z?

It should clock any higher then the multi set in bios.

Whats your idle vcore?
