Default Overclocking Problem


So I recently updated my Bios to the new 790i ultra P06 update on my new EVGA 790i Ultra and now im having a lot of issues. Before the new update I had my cpu running stable at 3.5 core speed @ 1.3 volts with an RFSB of 1400. Multi of 10

Now its running at 2.1 core speed @ 1.4 volts with an RFSB of 1400. Though when i got into my Bios everything looks fine, i got everything set nice and it even says my frequency is at 3500 and my multi is 10 but in cpu-z it says 6. Im not exactly sure whats going on? Any way i can go to my previous version of the bios ?

Also it says something is wrong with my floppy on boot, i took some pics that can be seen below.

Here is where I got the update and i used the CD/DVD installation:

got it working now, reflashed my Bios again. Thanks GRANT

Default Re: Overclocking Problem

The general rule when it comes to BIOS updating is: If it ain't broken, don't fix it.

It was just Intel's Stepspeed stepping in though. When the CPU is idling, the multiplier changes to it's lowest value to downclock the CPU and save power. You obviously had it disabled in your previous BIOS settings.
