Do you know if he attempted to overclock this for you at all?
I am 100% sure he didnt.
Weird.

When you changed the settings in the BIOS the last time, you definitely saved before exiting? I just find it weird that it's overclocked a little bit already.
Yes i definatly saved, i will go through the bios again and look for anything else, but is it normal for my proccesser core speed to go from 1648MHz straight up to 4223MHz, same with the bus speed in a blink of an eye?

When under load at stock, it's supposed to dynamically adjust between 3.5 GHz and 3.9 GHz and the BCLK (the "Bus Speed") is supposed to stay at about 100.0 MHz. This is why it looks a little overclocked to me and so I'm confused. When it's idling, it's supposed to be at 1.6 GHz (Bus Speed at 100.0 MHz, multiplier at x 16.0).

No, you want a variable CPU frequency, that is not the problem. The problem is, after resetting your BIOS to factory defaults, you SHOULD have a base clock of 100MHz, and a CPU frequency of either 1600MHz or whatever it spools up to.....4223MHz is exactly what you come up with by using some auto overclocking feature......it shouldn't read that. I want you to reboot and go back into your BIOS, load factory defaults again, and make sure you save settings when you exit(if you are unsure about either of those steps, please say so...I need to know that this was done correctly). Allow it to reboot, and then when you are able, Shutdown your PC completely. When it is shut down, unplug the power supplies power cord and hold the Power On button until you don't see any LED lights lit up on the motherboard. Ok, the following is VERY important, you can't rush this and just dig in there or you may damage something. I have attached a page directly from your motherboard's manual that shows you how to clear the CMOS settings. After you have everything powered down, you want to pull the little plastic jumper from the first two pins, and carefully replace it over pins 2 and 3. I found it is best to use a long set of tweezers to do this, just being careful you don't slip and poke the motherboard. After you place it on pins 2 and 3, leave it there for 10-15 seconds and then put it back where it was originally. Plug the power cable back in, and flip the switch on the back of the PSU(if you flipped it prior) and power on your system. Press the Delete key to get back into your BIOS, and once again load factory defaults and save and exit. Restart and let it load Windows, and let us know what CPU-Z says.

Yes, it is suppose to change depending on the load on the CPU. We are saying that it is showing it is Overclocked still. Go through the process above and that should fix it. If you have ANY questions about it, ask before you start, please.

I read your post brady, and i will do that if it is still wrong. I played around with some more settings in the Bios, and i got the bus speed down from 103 to 100.

Just to add, I personally recommend turning the PSU off before unplugging the PSU's power cable. Give it about 5-7 seconds after turning the PSU off before unplugging the cable.

Yeah, in my attempt to get the process down, I forgot to say turn it off.......Thanks

Oh, wait a minute.
  1. Change Ai Overclock Tuner to Auto
  2. Change Turbo Ratio to Auto
If this doesn't work, then there's one more thing in the BIOS that I want to change, but I don't know if it will work for this yet.

It should never show anything higher than this:

Core Speed: 3900.00 MHz
Multiplier: x 39.0
Bus Speed: 100.00 MHz

Very tiny fluctuations are normal.

Anyway, I'm about to begin eating some potato chips because it's the last part of my dinner. So, I'll be a bit handicapped for a while here. My responses may seem a little slower.
