Overclocked E4600 problems

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hiya!
Basically I followed this guide and overclocked my c2d E4600.
However I have some problems. While CPUID picks it up running at 3Ghz, like it should be, nothing else does. Task manager still shows it maxing out at 2.4ghz, and it isn't performing any better in Passmark tests or the windows experience index. Any ideas what could be wrong? My motherboard is the Asus P5L-VM 1394.
Thanks!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~ EDIT:
I went into the bios and turned off Intel Speedstep. Now it works nice. Not sure how that affected it but oh well.
Sorry if I wasted anyone's time.

I'm running Windows 8 Pro 64bit, if it matters.
