Overclocking Problem

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I recently bought a pre-built custom rig which had been overclocked to 4.4GHz and all was running well but I had a bit of a dip in FPS when I enabled 8x MSAA on Far Cry 3 so my clever brain thought it'd be a great idea to mess around with BIOS settings to OC the CPU to 4.6GHz. After I was finished I restarted the computer and checked to see if it was now running at 4.6GHz and the speed was fluctuating all over the place on all 4 cores, changing speeds every few seconds. Before I made the stupid decision to mess about with the BIOS the CPU would run at 4.4GHz consistently and would never drop or rise by more than 0.100Ghz. Any help on how to resolve this issue would be greatly appreciated.

What are you using to see your speed?

What does it say the multiplier is?

What Card / CPU?

CPU-Z

Multiplier is 16-41 - I think this is the problem because the multiplier drops and rises according with the Ghz

ATI Radeon 7970HD / i5 3570k
