I'm running a i5-3570k with a Gigabyte UP4TH Z77 motherboard.

in the bios it shows that I have a 4.2Ghz overclock but my CPU-Z shows this:

Am I missing something?

here is what I get when I run Prime95:

How does it look?

the reason that CPUZ says that is probably because you have a cool n quiet (or something along those lines) on. it brings your CPUs frequency and voltage down to save power. if you turn that off, you should be at 4.2GHz 24/7

Well I've never heard of a "cool n quiet" nor do I know where I would turn that off. Total noob here when it comes to this.

Cool n Quiet is for AMD CPUs. This is Intel Speedstep, when idle it reduces speed and vcore. Put some load on the CPU and check...

Great thank you for explaining that. Can you tell me how this looks?

Don't worry about it anyway - there's no real reason to turn it off. But if you are curious, there are 4 settings that control the Intel power saving - EIST, C1E, C3 and C6. EIST and C1E are the two big ones - C3 and C6 control the deep sleep states. If you disable those it'll run full speed all the time.

I've just ran CPU-Z two different times and within 5-10 minutes my system completely locks up and wont respond to any keyboard commands or mouse clicks. O.o

How are you setting the Vcore? Just on Auto? You've stability tested that overclock with Prime95 or IntelBurnTest?
post #9 of 33
Sounds like you need more vcore. It is recommended that when you overclock that you turn off all power savings features as listed above. The reason for this is when the cpu goes to power saving for a micro second it may drop the voltage before the multiplier is droped which in turn will lock or bsod your computer.

Not true. Sandy and Ivy chips overclock just fine with all the power saving features on. The only time you might run into trouble is with an offset voltage, where disabling C3 and C6 can help prevent idle lockups.
