Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z Underclocking my CPU?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
A few days ago, I received a Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z mobo for a new build, moving a lot of the hardware from my previous build into my new one, since my Sabertooth 990FX kicked it not too long ago. I have my new build in my signature.

Anyway, on to business. I put everything together and she fired right up, as expected. What was not expected, however, was the CPU core speed to be stuck at 939.1 with a multiplier of 4. I have adjusted the bios, combing through them for some undiscovered power saving feature or some other similar BS. No matter what I set the CPU setting to in the bios, it always boots up with those settings. I have tried using AMD Overdrive, as well as the AI Suite auto tuner, and the ROG Connect with my laptop to try and force it to my desired settings, to no avail. The only thing that I can think of personally is that somehow either the ram or cpu is damaged from the last build. I don't think it's the board, because it runs without a hiccup, aside from a low fps in games when the CPU demand ramps up. Help?

I got this problem sorted out. When I installed the board, I installed the newest drivers in the bios and I guess it didn't stick. A reinstall of the latest bios—currently 1403—combined with the F5 + F10 combo clockedmy processor properly, which is now screaming.
