Default Why is my FSB multiplier fluctuating after an overclock?

Alright I need a little help on my overclocking job. Ill tell you everything I did. First I started upping my FSB until my CPU got close to 2.9GHz then I upped my voltage to 1.4125 then increased my FSB until it reached 3.2GHz. I didnt touch the multiplier, so it is default at 9x. My computer booted up perfectly and I have been running games for about two hours perfectly. The help that I need is when I start cpuz my multiplier is fluctuating. Its fluctuating between 6x and 9x which is changing my overall clock speed. What is causing this? How can I fix this? Thanks in advance for your help.
