Default Need some help overclocking

Hey, I have an i5 3570k with an 212 evo. My motherboard is a MSI Z77MA-G45. I'm currently using this guide: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/ [...] king-guide
to overclock my i5. However, when i adjust my clock ratio to say 4.0 and reboot, according to CPU-Z and Aida64, my core speed is still at 3.4GHz.

My bios settings

i recommend everest by lavalys for monitoring and hardware info, and live stats of temps and usage. it also give you ability to use a constantly up to date and moving chart so you can watch everything over time. cpuz tends to be off. i have a different setup, but cpuz says i have my fsb at 180x21 to get 3.8 when i really have it at 200x19... it is good for stuff like voltage, and memory timings tho. some motherboards dont like weird multipliers as well. like i cant use even numbers, 22 will not work. it auto sets back to 21. i would say see if you can get everest, (all over torrent sites if you do that sorta thing) but i still bought the version i have now after using a torrent version for a while, i was so happy with it i wanted to give the designers what they earned.
