So today I decided to overclock my 3570k to 4.4 GHz and I set the voltage to 1.310v. I booted it up and it ran okay, so I ran Far Cry and after about 3 minutes it crashed. I then bought the multiplier to 42, which made the frequency 4.2 GHz. I booted it up again and looked at the clock speed on Core Temp and it still said 4.4 GHz (shown in the image). I went back into the BIOS to make sure I'd saved it right and it was still at 4.2 GHz.
So does anyone know why my clock speed will not go back to 4.2 GHz, or even the default speed?
MOBO: Asus Sabertooth Z77
CPU: i5 3570k
I set my BIOS back to how it was and I'm still getting 4.4 GHz.
