I am going to have to do more testing when I have time; I must have screwed up somewhere.
This makes me feel like such a fool, but CPUZ and Real Temp still show 34x when the CPU multiplier is set to 40x and sleep mode still doesn't work properly.
Just for grins, why don't you load HWINFO, either 32 or 64 bit for whichever OS you have. run the sensor screen and it will show speeds for each thread, vcore, temps, all that stuff in one package and I've found it to be as accurate as anything else out there right now. You can use either the latest full install program or the latest beta, they both work well.
I still don't get the hard drive thing, I've never seen anything like that and can't come up with any plausible explanation.

Somewhere Sin0822 posted a 4.5GHz overclock profile for the Z77X-UD5H. I have been looking through many pages but cannot find it. Does anyone have a link to the post?

Anyone?

I've had the ASUS Z77 Pro. As far as performance, it did no better than my UD3H here, and it used more power.

It also cost about $80 more.. rolleyes.gif

I have P67 & Z68 Gigabyte boards running right now, as well as the Z77. The earlier boards are fine but I wanted a little more BIOS control, and for Z77 was thinking about jumping ship until I saw Sin0822's review of the UD5H. I have 2 of the boards and I'm happy with them. No problems other than the normal growing pains of early BIOS on new platforms. My boards are rock solid.
If there's a drawback it might be the fan control, there's no specialized software included for fine tuning but I use a fan controller anyway.

Well! I have discovered something very interesting. I started HWInfo 64Bit first after booting into Windows and it showed 4Ghz, but then when I start up Real Temp 3.7 or CPUZ 1.60.1 64Bit, the CPU multiplier dropped to 34x and if I use Super Pi it shows the same results I get when I have the CPU set to stock speed. Rebooting fixes that issue. Throughout my testing I've been using Real Temp to monitor CPU Temps and GPU plus CPU overclock while testing. I've never had a problem before with it and it works fine on my Seagate drive. This all has me wondering if maybe it's the reason sleep mode doesn't work properly. I'll have to test some other temperature monitoring programs to find one that doesn't mess with the CPU multiplier

Had a screech of death lockup just there.

Happens about once every 8 hours of gaming roughly.

Changed the BCLK to 101 instead of 100.1 to see if that helps.

You can monitor pretty much everything with HWINFO.
So what you're seeing isn't just the cpu idling down in Windows, it's actually not using the multi when stress testing?

I've seen that before (multi dropping as soon as you start Real Temp). Make sure you don't have "Disable Turbo" checked in the RealTemp settings. That option returns the multi to stock even when I have Turbo disabled in the Bios.
