UD5H does not want to downclock anymore

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
OK, just for starters I did search on this topic and cannot find anyone reporting this issue.

I recently noticed that my board is not down clocking anymore even though I have it set up to to use a offset and it had been working in past. I verified using cpu-z, realtemp, coretemp, and ET6 that my vcore is jumping around but more or less at the target vcore for under load (1.26) and the multiplier is as 48 (my max stable set in bios). Currently was using F12.

I started troubleshooting by going into bios and loading optimized defaults to observe behavior. Usually, at idle using the optimized default my system clocks at 1600 (vcore at 0.9 or about) and will turbo up to 32 or 3400 if I recall correctly. However, what I observed last night was it idling at 32-3400.

I noticed I am (was) using bios f12 and gigabyte has f14 posted to their website so I loaded f14. However, I experienced the same behavior. I can (I assume) go back to just OC with a straight vcore without using offset, but I kinda like to know that that feature is functional.

I am going to try and do a little more trouble shooting tonight and see if I can offset working again, but was just wondering if anyone else experienced anything like this.

it could be some software holding it up. Perhaps try to re-install windows, or see if coretemp or realtemp are running or something.

Thanks Sin,

I meant to post this in the Official Gigabyte Z77X thread. I am so tired...

I am going to do some troubleshooting tonight as I suspect software interference as well. Going to do a Safe Mode boot with my offset OC loaded and see how it behaves.

Coretemp and/or Realtemp didn't interfere with my offset OC before so I would be surprised if they are messing things up now but will check this as well. Like I said, I don't mind running my OC using straight vcore but just curious as to why all the sudden things have changed.

sometimes coretemp or real temp i forget which one can have an affect on the multiplier.

I was using cpu-z ver 1.61.5 64-bit. just updated to 1.61.3 64-bit and it is reporting the downclock correctly now as well as the vcore going down during idle like before. no worries.

Did you by chance change the power options in windows from balance to performance? Thanks

Ever since I began overclocking the cpu I changed the Windows power options to Performance, never shut off anything. As I mentioned above, the culprit was the version of CPU-Z that I was using. Once I reverted back to 1.61.3 64-bit version, all was well. Thanks
