OC in BIOS shows but not in Windows?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Okay, so I am attempting to OC my 2500K to 4.5GHz.

It shows in my BIOS but Windows still lists it as stock 3.3GHz. I used a program like CPU-Z and that too says 3.3GHz, however underneath the CPU it says Core Speed: 4513.3 MHz for all 4 cores. Here's a pic:

What could the issue be?

There is no issue, the core speed is what your current clock (4513.1 MHz) is. Intel Core i5-2500K CPU @ 3.30GHz is just the type of CPU you have at its factory clock speed.

Really? I think I've seen pictures where it changes to actually show 4.5GHz.

I've read CPU-Z is not very accurate with GIGABYTE boards, so I tried Easy Tune 6 and it says the same thing:

So basically you're saying I am currently at 4.5GHz even though Windows and programs don't display it outright? lol

Yeah, that is exactly it... WEI will only show stock cpu speed, not what it is running at... CPU-Z, OCCT, etc will show current speed as well as what the processor default is

Okay, now this is strange.

I restarted and went back to BIOS to check and see if my C1E and EIST were disabled, which they were, and now I go back to check CPU-Z and ET6 and before where it said CPU 4517.33 and Multiplier 45.00 it went completely back to stock at 3412.53 and 36.00 but in the BIOS nothing was changed....

I'm so confused. lol

I reverted back to Optimized Defaults in the BIOS and tried a 4.0GHz overclock with some minor volt changes and it seemed to work.

What's weird with OC'ing is Windows, CPU-Z, Easy Tune 6, etc. still all say "Specification: Intel Core i5-2500K CPU @ 3.30GHz" which I've read is normal because Windows doesn't detect OC settings so it always just displays factory levels and programs like CPU-Z do this as well, however they do display the OC as "Core Speed" and "Multiplier" so it reads for me 4011.9MHz and x40.0. Vcore also shows 1.30V.

Here's what I mean:

Also, I just did a quick Intel Burn Test w/ Maximum stress level and my temps were WAYYY too high. My temps (Core 1-4) were reaching 79, 85, 84, 78. At 4.0GHz I should be maxing no more then 60C, so I definitely have to reseat my H60 CPU Cooler. It's probably because I used stock paste.

Does anyone know how to properly clean paste from a CPU and cooler and apply new paste?

I just tried lowering my voltage to 1.17 and my temps were around 65 maxed which is better. I think having 1.3V was too high for a 4.0GHz OC.

65 still seems a bit high.
