That's what's so aggravating, I keep reading about all of the awesome speeds that this CPU can reach, but mine seems to be stuck at 3.26Ghz - which is the highest I've been able to get it (3.16 Ghz stock). Any higher than that, and the screen stays blank (nothing at all on my screen & monitor still in standby). I can set a multiplier as low as 6 and as high as 9.5, but none of them can get over 3.26Ghz....Does anyone know of a way to get past this? I really want to see what this CPU can do....

Type in 10,000 and it will set it to the max allowed.

If they are set too low it will prevent the CPU from overclocking.

It won't let me enter 10,000 for Long/Short Duration Power Limit, it says "Invalid Input, auto adjusted!" at sets it at 500, which seems to be the max.

Curios what board and bios you are on. Might be worth downgrading one iteration and then back up.

I was on 1.7 BIOS, just downgraded to 1.6 and still same issues. Guess I can keep trying to downgrade but I'm not thinking it'll do much.

500 for max is fine.
Did you try using the "per core" setting instead of "all cores"? Interestingly my Pro3 won't let me go below 38 if I use that.

I don't see a "per core" setting available. In the CPU ratio the only thing there is "Auto" or "All Core."

Can we see your WHOLE BIOS? scroll down a little bit further on the OC TWEAKER page, and also post the ADVANCED CPU CONFIGURATION settings?

Format a thumb drive FAT32 and boot to bios and hit F12 to take a screen shoot , cell phone pictures work well too

Interesting. It seems that the Pro4 is actually worse than the Pro3.

// Edit
I've just read a report where an Extreme4 showed the same symptoms, not being able to go above multi 38 and the "per core" option simply vanished from the list.
The only solution for that guy was a replacement CMOS from Asrock directly, but the issue returned twice even with the new chips. Some sort of BIOS corruption it seems. If you can't resolve it by clearing the CMOS, removing the battery over night and reloading the BIOS default setting, your best shot is probably to contact Asrock directly.

This is the thread of that unlucky guy:

Yea I emailed them about it, haven't heard back yet. Also going to try the tweak forums since it's supposedly "official" tech support. Sounds like an RMA is in the future.... ugh...
