Hello All. I hope there is someone out there who can provide a little assistance with a major overclocking problem I am having. I have read both guides by Raja, motherboard manual from front to back, and watched numerous you tube videos looking for an answer.
My problem is that the overclock settings from my BIOS are not showing up in Windows 7 under the system properties and Windows shows my processor being at its default speed of 3.2GHZ. So I read that thats a normal issue with Win 7. So I try CPU-Z and OCCT and they both show that my CPU is only using a x12 multiplier and that its overclocked at a NEGATIVE 62.5%, which is 1.2GHZ. I have tried changing as many settings in the BIOS as possible. I have tried disabling the following settings: Intel Speedstep, Turbo Mode, and C1E. I have tried the default OC profiles, like Normal OC, Gamers OC, etc. Those dont make a difference either.
When the computer POSTS it shows Intel i7 3200mhz (Target: 4700mhz)
Can someone please help?
I willing to paypal someone for their time in helping me get this issue resolved and possibly perfect a system overclock for myself.
