Hi,

Have exactly the same Question as this

http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/248064-28-e8400-question

Initially the multiplier was at x8 in the BIOS, but I set it to x9 and it posted at 3 ghz, so I booted into Vista. Ran CPU-Z to double check that all was in order, only to find out that CPU-Z was showing that it was running at x6 multiplier and 2 ghz. This confused me, because the BIOS and Windows both show it as running at 3.

but the Sticky that Evilonigiri refers to
http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/ [...] multiplier
appears to be missing. :(

Anyone care to explain or refer to another sticky please?
 
Solution
what ur seeing in cpu-z is intels speedstep will throttle down your cpu to save energy if u put it under load it will go up to full speed this is normal
