Hello guys!

I have a problem with overclocking the i5 3570k processor on the MSI Z77A-G45 motherboard. About 7 years ago I turned it up to 4.2 and it has worked without a problem so far. However, I had to replace the disks in the computer and reinstall the system, which resulted in a bios reset and I am now forced to do the OC again. For a few days, however, I have had a big problem, I read forums, watched guides on youtube and found no answer anywhere. The problem is that despite the fact that in the bios I change the processor clock, after entering the system - the cores work all the time on the standard 3.4. I can set 4.5 in the BIOS, but when I enter the system and CPU-Z or OCCT it shows that the clock is 3.4 even though in the BIOS in the corner of the screen the current clock is 4.5 and after entering windows in "computer properties" I have info about 4.5ghz. This is the case with all timings, regardless of whether it is set to 3.6 / 4.0 / 4.2 or 4.5.

I have an updated bios to the last one released by MSI, on 09/29/2013.


Do you have any idea what it might be? The rest of the options (e.g. core voltage or RAM timing) change without any problem.

I attach screenshots to visualize what it looks like in the system and my bios photos.

I see that you have good knowledge in such cases. Maybe you can help me. THANKS ANYWAY :)

maybe you want to try my bios? it got the latest intel ME and Microcodes, added nvme as boot support. use the "Update Bios + ME" on M-Flash. i did the same for my friend and some of his problems were gone (vs stock bios). you should give it a try
