Hi all,

Just put the computer together a week ago. Today I noticed the i5-4570 is always running at its turbo speed of 3.6ghz. I am unsure why. Is this due to something in my power settings, which I believe says 100% as the minimum value.

Yeah, change that to 0%.

 

Also, I recommend using Alt+Print Screen to re-take these screenshots (or just spend some time cropping them). You could get in trouble with a moderator for this wallpaper.

 

To anyone who's wondering: no, there was no nudity in his wallpaper or anything similar to it. I'm sorry to disappoint you. :)

Whoops, I didn't even consider the background Image. I'll take them down, thanks for the help!

My i5-4570 is exhibiting the same behavior. Processor speed is not downclocking from the single-core boost of 3.6GHz (CPU Vcore at around 1.08V) at idle, even with the Windows power plan set to Balanced (CPU minimum 5%, max 100%).

C1, C3, and EIST are all enabled in the bios. I had to set the power plan to Power Saver to get it to downclock at idle (800MHz, CPU Vcore around .75-.8V).

Rig specs:
i5-4570
Gigabyte GA-H87M-D3H (latest BIOS version, F6)
8GB (4x2GB) G.Skill Ares 1866 CAS9 (set to 1600 CAS9 which is the max supported for this mobo)
120GB Sandisk Extreme II
1TB Seagate Barracuda
Seasonic M12II-520
Silverstone Temjin TJ08-E
Cooler Master Seidon 120V
No discrete GPU, still using iGPU

Any ideas why the Balanced power plan is exhibiting the same behavior as the High Performance plan? The rig's got great cooling so temp's not a concern (Aida64 max 54deg C, Prime95 max 61deg C) although less power consumption will always be welcome.

You're welcome!

 

Did 0% help at all? I wasn't confident that it would, but I'm hopeful.

It seems to have helped, though realtemp and cpu-z have different thoughts from one another.

Yeah, Real Temp is more accurate. Still, it's looking good.
