CPU keeps downclocking

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys ive been having troubles with my cpu (or most likely mobo) recently. I will start playing a game and the core clocks on my cpu will stay down at 1.6 or even 800Mhz sometimes. I have tried turning off C&Q but that did nothing and I tried to change the bios profile to manual so that i could hopefully turn off anything that might do that but it still happens and its made my rig worse than my cheap crappy laptop at gaming fps wise. Does anyone have any ideas how to stop this happening?

what are your temps on the cpu? (on desktop and while gaming) sounds like the CPU is throttling for some reason (usually always due to too high temps or lack of sufficient power)

Is the chip OC'ed? If it is OC'd and you are running too much voltage through the chip then it could be throttling to prevent VRM from becoming to hot. Set your voltage manually instead of using auto if it is not OC'd.

In anycase.. you will want to also disable C1E as that is also a power saving feature similar to C&Q

erm.. with what cooling can you get that low temps? and what did you use to measure the temps?

Probably not VRMs as they are more than sufficient
