    Default Cup-z Shows multiplier x3

    Things were fine. then lastnite after going into bios and writing down setting then booting into XP I noticed that Cpu-z Was showing the multiplier at 3x which makes the cpu run at 5.49Mhz on a 165 Bclk. initially used this http://images.tweaktown.com/imageban...2.12_(ENG).pdf
    Guide to set everything. From there I started lowering voltages in single increments. Actually lowerd it by 3 marks. Nite b 4 last I installed the new PSU and the Noctua. All was fine. Now anthing I try, the multiplier is x3 in CPU-z. Real temp shows same thing as bios settings. Benchmarks are comming up like it's a 500 Mhz processor. Right now I have pluged the original PSU back in and have same results..Tried setting optimized, also did Clear Cmos.. no help.. Anyone seen this before? Gonna try reloading os to see if it's an issue there.. The PC is about a month old now and all was good till lastnite... Also. Easytune see's it at 3x

    Ouch, when you installed this new heatsink did you remove the CPU at all? Just wondered if you bent some pins under there? Have you checked? I would look there first

    Clean Install would not help if you are seeing 3x in the BIOS, Just a heads up

    Are you sure you have the 24 and 8Pin plugged in tight, just checking. So all was ok after you installed the new heatsink and PSU, for while or what?

    Have you tried clearing the CMOS the full way? If not, try my method outlined here instead of the Button, it could help >>>

    I have never seen this at all, but I would look first for bent pins myself. Let me know if you find anything out with this. Sounds terrible, I am sorry to hear all this

    Actually all looked as it should in the bios. I didn't want to flash cause all was working just fine for my needs (Don't screw with it if it ain't broke). Turned out my XP got hosed. My nephew brought his Vista 64 over and we installed it.. all is looking good again. I'm at the desktop with 195x21 so Realtemp and CPU-z shows. I have a REALLY sweet chip. I'm on my second machine atm.. main is in pieces on the dinner table. Soon as I get it back together and in place .. will fine tune some more and take some screenies.. I can't believe I was majorly griefing over it, and it was the OS. Thanks kindly for the replies..
    I am usually very careful puting components together. I didn't pop the core when I installed the new HSF. I do Body and fender for a living.. So i'm good at taking stuff appart and putting back together...

    Hey man, NICE!!!

    Ya, I was worried and felt bad for you there for a minute! Thought you may have to get a new CPU or board

    I was worried about a bent pin under the CPU, glad to see all is well!!!

    Good luck getting everything finished up and doing some more tweaking!
