CPUZ & OCCT readings

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi there,

I have just been taking a little bit of time to refine my OC. However, I was just wondering if anyone could answer my question.

When I open CPUZ, the frequency reading is a solid 4200Mhz all of the time despite having Intel Speed Step enabled in the BIOS. However, when opening OCCT, I notice that when idling, it drops to 1600Mhz which is what I was expecting it to do.

Is this just an error in CPUZ or does the false reading lay with OCCT? Any comments or thoughts would be appreciated!

Regards
Crooksy

I suspect CPU-Z has a slower update speed and that OCCT is more susceptible to sensor/update speed error


^ 9GHz... yeh right.

CPU-z seems to update slower which is why if you have offset voltage or EIST/C1 on overclock it jumps around
... happens even more if you have your PWM phase control speed to extreme and Vcore Voltage response to fast
