Hi. I can't figure out why my new fx 6300 is running at 3792mhz. Long story short. Had a 1090t but had the parts for a second rig all but cpu and bought a fx6300. I took the fx chip to play with and overclock. i have a sabertooth mother board. When i put new chip in my core temp and my hardware monitor won't show me multiple core temps. only core temp works and just shows one core temperature. Besides the programs not showing core temps. cpu-z shows chip at 3792mhz... At first i thought it was doing this because i had my 1090t clocked to 3.8. so i pulled cmos battery and set things to defaults to make sure. That did nothing. So then i did a fresh install of windows and i pulled out cmos battery again. In the bios it shows that cpu 3.5ghz. and turbo clock to 4.1 or 4.2 whatever. Everything is set to auto. So i'm not sure why its doing this. nor can i figure out why my programs won't show multiple core temps. All in all its not a huge deal because i ran prime for awhile. around a hr and it didn't go over 36c and seems to work fine. But i still want to know why. I read somewhere that there is a update for windows 7. Not sure whats its about. i read something about a fx chip update. But i could be way off. Anybody have any ideas for me?
