    Yes I really do, but I want the frequency to read 3500 MHz or 3900 MHz, that is how it should be. I should not have to change the Host Clock Value from 100.00 MHz to 100.01 or 100.02 MHz just to get the accurate frequency. It looks like it is the spread spectrum that is causing this, but it can't be disabled like in some other motherboards for some reason

    On the GA EP43T-UD3L it showed the proper frequencies of 3000 MHz and 3800 MHz on the QX9650 with every update of CPU-Z. I tried 1.64 with the i7 4770k and it showed the same frequency of 3491 and 3891. Changing the CPU base clock seems to be the only way I was able to get the proper frequency, but it freezes, or resets settings after a reboot everytime I try

    You do realize that if you stop looking you will never know. But if thats all you have to worry about, than your a lucky person.

    Did you look at this with a different software like HWINFO for example?

    It's not the only thing to worry about and it's not lucky either if it's not displaying what it should be. This is a serious bug 3.50 GHz is 3500 MHz not 3.49 GHz or 3491 MHz.

    It only shows the Vcore, uncore, number of cores and temps, I couldn't find the frequency anywhere. On the system information page it shows 3491 MHz 3.49 GHz even though it is clocked at 3.89 GHz (3.90 GHz in the bios) 3891 MHz. See though? Everything that does show it is showing the same frequency.

    That's supposed to read 3891 MHz, but if it is going to display 3491 Mhz, it should be 3500 Mhz. It looks like the only way to get it to show properly is to overclock using the CPU base clock, but it's unstable that way. I doubt this will ever get fixed. Might as well forget it then. Saddening

    Now if this was affecting teh PC performance it could be considered a serious bug, but it does not, and Gigabyte have bigger issues to deal with. You are not teh only one with taht problem i have it too, its just not a big deal. I doesnt do anything for performance.

    In HWINFO, if you open the sensor window, you can see base clock and core speed somewhere in that list.

    You say changing BCLK gets unstable, but is this also the case if you just change it very little? I mean something like 100.02 or 99.98. I don't have Z87, but on my Z77 board's BIOS, I have a hunch that if the BIOS sees a 100.00 setting, it runs the program code that it also uses for "Auto", and setting something like 99.98 or 100.02 behaves differently. I don't know if that's actually true, but if it is it might also be similar on your board's BIOS and setting 99.98 might actually get you closer to 100?

    This is how Steam looks like for me in Linux using 99.98 MHz BCLK on my Gigabyte Z77 board:

    Attachment 7290

    Other programs don't show a nice round number like that. They show 3398 MHz stock speed and 4797 MHz for 48x multiplier (still closer to a flat number than what you report). I think Windows programs also show the same numbers. I can make those other programs show something like 4802 MHz if setting 100.02 BCLK in the BIOS.

    Yeah when I changed it to even 100.01 it would freeze in the bios, but it would be something like 3898 if I made it to the desktop to check. When I raised it to 100.02 it'd be 3902, I didn't try the 99.98 MHz. I was able to get the BCLK to become stable and now I got it to 3900. It shows it in steam, system information and My computer. I'm happy now, I had the wrong one, I had HWMonitor now I got HWiNFO and it also shows 3900 MHz

    Mine is also unstable at 100.01, in fact it was always unstable at 100.00 or auto. it was only when gigabyte changed it to 99.87 or whatever it is, that my system finally got way more stable. this was in F10 of my OC Force. prior, i could get stability but only if i put memory on 1333, or 1600 with crap timings on "stability" setting. anything higher and system was lucky to last 2 hours. Now memory is at 2133 with correct timings without issue. this happened with corsaire and gskill memory too that pass all appropriate mem tests. the system instability actually came from USB and CPU strange enough. but related to memory speed and timings. the BCLK change fixed everything. yes my overclock is 4.589 instead of 4.6ghz. but meh. better than unstable :)
