got this motherboard 990fxa-ud3 R4
running latest bios
http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4672#ov
a phenom 2 955 be c3
evga 850w b2 bronze powersupply
visiontek 290x
8 gigs Kingston HyperX KHX2133C11D3/4GX ram
h100i gtx water cooler

i am tryin to overclock it with multiplier but i change it but it does not actually change, bios says its changed but i am always stuck at same 3200mhz
i can change the bus speed but i can only go so far with that
anyone know why the multiplier isnt working in bios ?
i tried with easy tune it does 2 core but lowers the other 2 to 2ghz kinda confusing me upgraded from a gigaybye 970 d3 piece of krap board same type of bios for options and it overclocked just fine
