    Starting with my system info, even though it's in my signature:
    Phenom X4 9650 @ 2.3GHz
    4GB DDR2 800
    Gigabyte GA-MA780G-UD3H

    Alright.
    I've got the FSB set to 240, and the multiplier to 11.5.
    As far as I know, this should be giving me a clock speed of ~2.7GHz [I've gotten this before, note].
    But for some reason I'm only getting 2.3GHz.


    Here's speccy:
    Code:
    Cores	4
    Threads	4
    Name	AMD Phenom X4 9650
    Code Name	Agena
    Package	Socket AM2+ (940)
    Technology	65nm
    Specification	AMD Phenom(tm) 9650 Quad-Core Processor
    Family	F
    Extended Family	10
    Model	2
    Extended Model	2
    Stepping	3
    Revision	DR-B3
    Instructions	MMX (+), 3DNow! (+), SSE, SSE2, SSE3, SSE4A, AMD 64
    Virtualization	Supported, Disabled
    Hyperthreading	Not supported
    Fan Speed	637 RPM
    Bus Speed	240.0 MHz
    Rated Bus Speed	1920.0 MHz
    Stock Core Speed	2300 MHz
    Stock Bus Speed	200 MHz
    Average Temperature	37 °C
    And CPU-Z:

    Edit:
    Just noticed the multiplier on CPU-Z is reading as 5.75, any idea why this is?
    I have a feeling it's my issue.
    EditEdit:
    I'm going to keep playing with it, but I'm not really sure if anything will change, if I fix it before I get a reply here, I'll report back.

    Okay, I loaded failsafe defaults in the BIOS, and reset the multiplier to 11.5, fsb to 240.
    CPUZ now see the correct fsb and multiplier, but windows isn't.
    Edit:
    CPU-Z is seeing 5.75 again.

    Could it be some setting I don't know I have on that's throttling it down somehow?

    Oookay, found and turned off AMD coolnquiet, not windows, cpuz, and speccy see 2.76GHz.

    Please to delete thread.
    I feel foolish for making it before exploring all of my options.

    I know you found your answer, but he turn off cool & quiet? I only ask because on my oc I left it on, it ramps up to the oc when I need it to, am I missing something by leaving it on, or is it personal preference?

    You're probably not missing anything, but I like seeing the OC all the time, knowing it's at that clock.
    With CoolnQuiet, it may ramp it up during a game, but I don't really know.
    So it's personal preference.
    I may turn it back on later, when I can test things.
