Please Help ... High Wattage Issues with stock clocked i7-950.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Okay ... I think I have a problem with my CPU. I don't know what would cause it, but my CPU is "using" 143 Watts instead of the normal 130 according to HWmonitor. I used to have this configuration overclocked (4.2Ghz CPU / 2003Mhz Ram) but somehow lost my settings so I'm now on factory default settings.

Don't know what other information would be helpful but here is a screenshot of some various hardware monitoring programs.

That's usually due to Intel Turbo Boost if you have that enabled.

I checked and Intel Turbo Boost is Enabled by default and I'm just going to leave it like that for now. Thank you for clearing this up for me. Now I can finally put to rest that nothing is wrong with my CPU from my previous OCing.

Thanks Again!!! thumb.gif
