Is CPUZ showing the wrong "core speed"? Here's how to fix that.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have had a problem earlier with both CPU Z and my actual motherboard CD reading my CPU frequency at exactly half of what its regular clock is, it would read my i7 960 at 1570MHz 130 x 12 (should be around 3345MHz 138 x 25) so i started getting worried and all since im selling this processor to get the 2600k, so i started doing what everyone always says to do, and thats to turn C1E off and EIST. i tried all of that and no luck, so here i came across a much simpler "windows fluke" versus the bios or anything related to the sensors. basically for some reason when i built my computer and installed windows 7, it optimized my PC to run at what is a power management used mostly on windows laptops, a feature that shouldn't even exist on a desktop. this feature downclocks your processor and divides the multipliers by half, this is used in laptops if your battery runs low it helps preserve battery power...SO NOW HOW TO DISABLE THIS LAMENESS----> start > control panel > system and security > power options > set to "high performance" > change plan settings > change advanced power savings > processor power management, make sure everything is at a "active" or "100%" under that tab and there ya go, as simple as that!

You need to disable EIST and intel speedstep in your BIOS

It should be under AI intelligent tweaker or something.

trust me i went through a whole week trying all of the basic methods, its not related in this case, this is specifically related to the control panel method.

How about 2d performance booster in bios? Disable.

Thanks Retro, that fixed my issue! Only odd thing is I am seeing my CPU speed bounce up to 4000mhz from the 3600 I have it clocked to in BIOS.. seems like it used to be solid at the BIOS clock speed before Win7...
