i5 2500k oc problems

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have an ASRock Fata1ty Z68 Professional. But I cannot overclock my i5 with it.
I bump the multiplier up to 40, with no extra voltage, hoping for 4GHz. I've even tried with a little more voltage. The BIOS reports that i am running stable at 4GHz at 35 degrees. But, CPU-z and dxdiag both say that i'm not. CPU-z even says i'm only running at 1.6GHz. ???? Speedstep is off, turbo is off, nothing.. Help!

Its just downclocking to 1.6 ghz. Try putting it under load on Prime95 and it will boost up to 4.0 ghz. Mine does the same.

Ahh, That worked. Is there anyway to stop it from downclocking?

You don't want it to stay at 4.0 GHz 24/7. It wastes energy. Let it downclock and save money on your electrical bill.
