suddenly , changing the cpu multiplier in bios stopped working . for example i changed it to 45 , during post it shows cpu freq @ 4500mhz , then once in windows , max freq is 3700 (under load) .
loaded bios defaults ,changed multi to 45 , same thing . once in windows cpu freq was up to 3700 .
uninstalled asus ai suite - no change .
then switched to second bios chip (original 0257) and walla , everything works fine .
switched back to the first chip , no good ...
finally , cmos reset solved it .
it worked for couple of tries , then got stuck again , now its stuck at 4400mhz , and changing the multiplier had no effect .
i reset the cmos once again , and so far its working .but i dont know when its going to go crazy again .
board is MVE
