Recently I have bought Phenom II X3 BE, using it on the MSI 790GX-G65. After around 2 weeks I saw that CPU-Z is showing me that the core speed is less than the original 2.8GHz, to be precise it is either 800 or 1600MHz. I have tested it and saw that the frequency is varying if i do some things, opening and closing applications it goes up to the 2.8Ghz and than after it opens drops to those 800MHz. I have tried to overclock it, just adjusted multiplier in Overdrive but it automatically return it to the usual one, 800Mhz or show me that the multiplier stays at the point i put it but still it shows current frequency 800MHz... I have tried even changing voltages but also unsuccessful, again it returns it to the original values after I 'apply' my changes.

Please, could anyone help me to at least return it to original factory settings
of 2.8GHz even though i would like to make it 3GHz...
Thanks in advance.
Its called Cool n Quiet...You can disable it in Bios. It downclocks your processor and lowers the voltage to run cooler. It then up's the clock speed based on the load your processor has.

Thank you very much, i will do it immediately. Could you tell me for any setup for OC to 3GHz... or just push multiplier to 15x...

Well you could use the multiplier, mix the fsb and multiplier or just use FSB.

You could just push the fsb to 215 and you'd have 3.015GHz, or just push the multiplier to 15x and have 3.0GHz.

Using the FSB would probably give more performance since your HT and NB Frequency both goes up also along with RAM Speed.

I do not have any additional cooling, only the one that comes with processor... Is it OK if I do any OC??? I put it on 3GHz now and it is OK but is is it eventually OK???

I might need that too.
Seriously, overclocking AMD CPU is more complicated than overclocking Intel CPU.
By the way, is motherboard also limit your maximum OC?
Or is it depend on the chipset? My 720BE can't cross 3.8GHz even at 1.6v.
I'm just afraid I'll destroy the CPU and other hardwares.
Well I do get BSOD very often when trying to overclock this CPU.
My Windows XP life is already end because it was damaged when trying to overclock.

Download Coretemp from HERE and close all program apart from coretemp and see what the idle temperature is. Then download OCCT from HERE install and run for 30 minutes. This will give you an idea of temperatures you are getting.

If you want to overclock above 3.2Ghz i would advice getting an after market heat sink, they range in price, performance and shape. If you want an idea of what to get im sure some one around here can advice

I think 3.4GHz is still okay with stock heat sink. As long as you don't bump the voltage and 3.4Ghz is highest possible clock (in my CPU) without bumping the voltage.

theyre about the samething, except for the memory part, since upping fsb=upping mem speed at the sametime. so..easily laid out would be like this, - put memory on the next lower divider and start upping fsb. easiest way aroudn oc'ing here would be, using the Multi method and leaving everything on at default and just increase volts as itll need more volts for higher multi usage.
