Bios says one clockspeed, Cpu-Z says Another..Help!

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I have a Intel Pentium E2160 Allendale revision m0 and ive got it overclocked right now to 3.44 Ghz (at like 1.43vcore) from 1.8Ghz. pretty good right? well heres the thing....in the motherboard i can crack it up more if i raise the vcore and get everything right, it boots past post at 3.6 Ghz but when i use CPU-z it wont say ANYTHING past 3.46 and if i right click on my computer it says 3.46 as well.....can anyone explain as to why the mobo says its at 3.6 but everything else says otherwise????

Thanks
I/O

Edit: btw im runnin on a Ga-X38-DS4 Mobo with 4 gigs of this ram
