Hi
in my previous question i had some serious problems with my pc, turned out i shoulnt use AI booster for overclocking, so one of you guys said i should do these settings for 3,33 ghz:

AI Tuning = manual
Overclock Options = disabled
NB PCIe Freq = 100MHz
FSB - Memory Clock mode = Linked
FSB - Memory Ratio = 1:1
FSB (QDR) = 1333MHz
CPU Memory Multiplier = 10x
Spread Spectrum Control = ALL disabled
LDT Frequency = 4x
Plug & Play O/S = No

So i entered bios and changed everything. Now when i save and exit bios, first of all my pc doesnt boot automatically. Second thing is, i looked up the bios to see the speed and it turned out to be 2,66 ghz?

"when i save and exit bios, first of all my pc doesnt boot automatically"

If it didn't automatically reboot, what did it do? What did you do? Was there a message on the POST screen that said "overclocking failed"? Or do you have the Asus splash screen enabled so that the messages are hidden?

it did totally nothing, didnt turn off because i could hear its fans, so i rebooted manually. Then when the bios does its checking it says the previous boot had failed and i could restore the bios settings to default or continue, and then it starts windows like usual.

So I assume it's now running with the default settings?

You said it's running at 2.66GHz. Could it be that you have a E7300 rather than an E7400?

No thats the problem, its actually underclocked, i have the E7400 at 2,8 ghz. But if i use the settings you gave me it goes down to 2,66 ghz.

core freq. 333MHz (333.3MHz) x10 CPU multiplier = 3333 MHz or 3.33GHz
core freq. 333MHz x 4 (FSB multiplier) = 1333MHzFSB
core freq. 333MHz x 2.0 memory multiplier = 667MHz DDR2
(make sure of other settings also)
If you cannot post at these settings, try the same BUT with your CPU multiplier reduced to 9 (333.3x9=2999.7 or 3.0GHz effectively) If it proves stable here, then your board is not having trouble with 1333FSB and you can later try again with a slightly higher core voltage.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
If all else fails, read instructions.

It seems that the multiplier is staying at 10x but the FSB is dropping to 1066MHz (266MHz frequency). Use the clear CMOS jumper to reset the BIOS, then do as Fingers suggested.
