I recently got my system together with a gigabyte GA-P67A-UD7-B3 motherboard, 1200watt coolmax psu, 16gigs of gskill ddr3 1600mhz ram, and the i7 2600k. I was attempting some overclocking tests and eventually figured i would wait till i had more time so i just decided to run on stock settings. I reset the motherboard with optimized settings and all of a sudden the cpu started reading as 3.5ghz and wouldnt boot as 3.4 unless i disabled turbo mode, once i booted back into windows the system saw the processor running at 3.4ghz but the gigabyte utility listed the default speed at 3.5ghz. I was wondering if theres something that could have happened so the cpu is identified incorrectly. If i killed it ill get another one but i was curious i never went crazy in overclocking, never past 80c for more than a few seconds and never past 4.8ghz on the overclock which is tame from what ive read. Let me know id appreciate any tips or info.
HIT the Back to BIOS Button to reset everything.
Can you reiterate on that, what do you mean by back to bios im not familiar unless you mean a cmos reset which ive already done.
