Default CPU clock reset?

So, ugh...

My processor is ignoring my bios overclocks. In the bios it says 356x9 (3.2ghz), ram at 4-4-4-12 1:1 (which is correct.) In CPU-z and coretemp it's reading at 2.4 (266x9)

Why isn't my DS3R accepting my clocks? It's never been a problem. The only thing that's changed is I defragmented.

So you're saying that you've maintained 3.2ghz for a while now? Maybe it's just not as stable as you think. For starters, just run prime95 if you can somehow get it back to 3.2. Or just clock it a little lower and see if it's stable then. If it's stable at a lower fsb, then maybe you're just not running enough voltage when you're at 3.2

I'm saying it wouldn't boot into the BIOS set clocks at all, for RAM or CPU.

A CMOS reset fixed it, running stable at 3.2ghz, 4-4-4-12 1:1 timings
