2500K drops CPU speed

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok I am not quite sure what's going on here

I overclocked my system a while ago and the CPU seem's to be dropping its frequency, the voltage stay's the same

It fluctuates from 4700MHz to 3101MHz then normally stays at 1600MHz. I have disabled the Turbo Core feature as well as the C1E I think its called.

Any help on how I can keep it at 4.7GHz

That's just how the motherboard keeps it efficient. It downclocks the CPU when it is idle. It is no big deal, and I don't think you want it at 4.7 24/7. You are fine thumb.gif

Why would you want it running full speed all the time? It goes to 4.7 under load and 1.6 at idle, you dont need 4.7 when its not doing anything.

If you really want to keep it full speed you need to disable both EIST and C1e, but as the others have said, there really is no reason to do so. In fact, you should go ahead and re-enable C1E if you really did disable it.
