i7 constant 2.9GHz with 22 multisampling

I am no expert in overclocking nor do I know much about BIOS and stuff, but after I've updated my BIOS and installed new system, my processor constantly works on 2.9 GHz with 22 multisampling without any load whatsoever.

It used to work on ~1.6 on idle, but now that's not the case. I don't recall changing anything in BIOS (accidentally overclocking it a bit), so any help would be appreciated.

Cheers.

Scratch that I may be wrong.

According to BIOS all cores are active. Task manager also shows all cores active, as well as RealTemp

TMonitor and Everest show each core separately working on 1.6GHz and 12x multiplier, while CPUZ still shows the processor working on 2.9GHZ and 22x multiplier

I beleive that when you have turbo on and you are using a one core application, turbo will throttle the first core and turn on 22x multiplier. You can check in the bios if your fsb is at 133 and you have turbo off with a multipier of 20x.
