Windows doesn't recognise my overclock?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So basically I just overclocked my CPU to 4.3GHz and under "Control Panel\\All Control Panel Items\\System" the reading is coming up as 3.95GHz... I know 100% that my CPU is at 4.3GHz, it says so in the BOIS and in CPUz, what is going on here, any help?

btw I have Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Well, you already know the answer.... Windows doesn't recognize overclock.
It is just display the CPU information.
Once again...

CPU will underclock itself when its not needed, at full load it should go back to set OC. Run prime or something that will push your CPU to full load and report back.

the CPU doesn't under-clock itself... it runs at 4.3GHz and Load and Idol and is there a way to get windows to display the correct frequency?

I also have a desktop gadget (CPU meter) that also says my CPU is at 3.95GHz
