Is there a chance you are booting with the 22x multi and adjusting BCLK once booted up? The score seems higher then expected for the clocks, but it would be realistic with the 22x multi. I ran into the same issue while benching my E5649, pretty sure its a bug with CPU-z.

Australia Bullant says:

Yes man it's what is happening, I was booting with 22 multi, 245-250 blck then up to 255 within was down clocking to multi 21x after blck adjustment. 


I thought it it was just the platform or system, so you think even tho CPUz has downclock 21x from bug that the multi is still 22x? If true that would make core 5.5xx.? 

The result is legit it just is possible as you say that it could still be 22x multi that would make it higher freq then cpuz is reporting 

Germany ground says:

Yeah, that should be it, you aren't the first one to run into it. CPU is actually running the higher frequency, its just CPU-z freaking out. I think @TAGG did some testing on that.

Can't your board boot higher BCLK/can you try controlling the multi from within Windows? Booting up to 260 BCLK should be doable on most boards (if not limited by the CPU off course) ;) 

Australia Bullant says:

With the easytune I'm using it wouldn't allow me to adjust multi within window, 255 blck was its limit...when trying 256 blck it would lockup even when booting higher blck to windows 


when I try again I can look for a new easytune or something to see if can move multi within windows 

the other thing I can do next time is boot 22x multi and 251 blck and then blck to 255 this way the multi should stay at 22x, I think the multi is only downclocking after 5 blck adjustment within windows

nice result mate. yeah it's a CPUz and X58 bug, the multi doesn't actually change.

Thanks chilli mate

He has backup accounts prepared already for country cup :)) .

Shh ,don’t let the mods see it.


Btw ,any of you encoutered this problem :

No weird shenanigans there, had messaged Rich a while back about the issue but didn't get a response :/ If I reply directly on a Result I always show up as Rusty JS. No idea whats going on with your Black Edition board, but if you solve it I'll gladly take that information, I have similar issues with a DFI x58 Board I picked up a while back :/

Which PCIe clock are you booting at? Have you tried using Setfsb? Did you play with clock skews? Though 255 under LN2 isn't an unrealistic max usable BCLK even for a 32nm CPU, its about average for batches from '10 (I had much more luck with '11 batches averaging ~250 on air)

Austria TAGG says:

Your chip was running 5,61GHz during that run i calculated efficiency and that score would fit for that freq :)

If it was 5.35GHz it would be too good to be true :) Doesn't the UD9 have some way to adjust multi in OS? i allways booted up my intended bclk and then raised multi in OS to make sure everything displayed correctly...

Australia Bullant says:

I haven't spent much time on it really, being a new platform for me too, when I have little more time I'm sure I'll get it working, either setfsb, raising multi only within windows with correct easytune.


with 9900k and z390 launch I'm pretty keen to try that atm so not sure when I'll get time on 1366 and all the other legacy platforms I have atm ahah 

Finland Jokot says:

Was experiencing same issue, so my score was on highest I could get while cpuz reported right multi. Only workaround I could find was booting higher bclk on my Asus board.
