I have a funny thing going on with my clock speed. I have conroe e6600 @ 2.4 GHz oc'ed to 3.3 GHz stable. Now in the bios and anywhere that displays the clock speed (not in real time) says it runs at 3.3 GHz. But when I run PC Wizard and CPUID the clock speed (in real time) changes from 2208 MHz to 3311 MHz, the multiplier is the cause because it changes from 6.0 to 9.0, so affecting my clock speed. In the bios there is no option to change the multiplier myself. The benchmark in PC Wizard shows a low score for my processor, and high score for everything else. So what is making my clock jump between those to speeds? Or I guess the question is why is the multiplier changing?

Bios driver updated late 2007.

3dMark06 CPU score 2902.
3dMark06 overall score 10500.

Mobo - P5B
3 Gig Ram
Intel e6600 @ 3.3 GHz
nvidia 8800 GTS
dual boot Vista/Xp Pro

Thanks guys.
