Re: cpu multiplier
A logical reason is maybe because you did not save the new setting! Also, some multipliers are topped at a certain value ( like 15 ..times your bus speed..200Mhz which gives you 3000 or 3 Gig). Sometimes it is not set at max. and there you can increase the multiplier value to match your processor frequency.
