Why is my CPU Frequency stuck on stock setting after OC?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello,
So I was following a guide here on youtube on overclocking a biostar TP67B+


I followed his steps except the CPU Ratio to 37 instead of 45. I also did changed CPU max Amp to 110 and CPU core current max at 110. I did not disable Execute Disable Bit because I read it was not necessary for minor overclocks?

Anyways I tried it and I'm still stuck on my stock speed, 3.3ghz (Checked in my computer > properties)

Computer specs:
Intel i5 2500k 3.3ghz
Biostar TP67B+
2x 2GB 2000mhz DDR3 ram 1x 2GB 1666mhz
Cooler Master RS-600W Power supply
Intel 160GB SSD on ACHI
Windows 7 64-Bit

Also my idle temperature on cpu is 39C with a H50 cooler...It was at 28 the other day... I just cleaned and applied some artic silver thermal paste as well...

If someone could show me step by step on how to overclock with this motherboard and CPU that would be great. I know there are guides there but if someone has the exact, it would be better than the generic o.c guide

Windows doesn't accurately show clockspeed sometimes. Use CPU-Z to check what the clockspeed is.

Ideally, you should idle at 1.6ghz with speedstep, and then under load it should go up to your turbo multi. I would not recommend forcing a multi 24/7, because speedstep and other power saving features work very great on Sandy Bridge.

Ah problem solved. I thought so too but wasn't too sure. Thanks a lot!
CPU-Z solved it by accurately showing true clock core.

I overclocked it to 3.6ghz. Do you think its necessary or should i just leave it stock and let turbo boost kick in when it needs to?

Overclock it to at least 4.5 I'd say. Your cooling is more than sufficient and these processors were made to go at least that far.
