i just did oc to 3.6 for my bro in his E8400
i made stable 3.6 GHZ oc and when i went for 4 GHZ it was stable and it detected 4GHZ in cpuz but on System properties it shows only 3.6.

When you re-overlocked did you reset the bios first? this is always a good idea.

Did you set the ram timings and such? Also, check to make sure the PSU is powerful enough. If it's not, it can cause strange issues like you're describing. Also, you might want to give us some specs. Some boards have some funny characteristics, and it's nice to know the brand to give you some help

maybe this is just a fluke? if cpuz says its 4Ghz, but msoft says otherwise, and you know how to overclock, then don't worry about it.

If you have changed the original CPU multiplier to something else, then Microsoft will read it wrong and Cpu-Z will read it correctly.
