Wrong frequency in CPU-Z

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys! I got my motherboard back from RMA a couple days ago and I wanted to overclock my CPU again. I set the CPU multiplier to 43 in the BIOS for a total speed of 4.3Ghz.

For some reason CPU-Z, Realtemp, and MSI control center all still show a speed of 3.5 Ghz, but Task Manage shows a speed of about 4.3Ghz. Can anyone help me out? Am I using wrong settings for overclocking? The mother board I got back has an updated BIOS so I am still getting used to it. Thanks!

BTW, I wasn't sure if I should post this in the CPU section or Motherboard section so I'm sorry if I should have posted this somewhere else.

you have an old version of cpu-z you need the newest version uninstall and get the latest one.

also just reset bios to defaults and clear cmos to be sure and than start over with the current cpuz

Make sure Disable Turbo is not selected in the RealTemp - Settings window.

RealTemp T|I Edition

RealTemp and CPU-Z were not the problem. They were both accurately telling you that Intel Turbo Boost was disabled and it was. Task Manager is the problem.

You would figure with all of Microsoft''s cash, they could afford to hire someone to write some decent MHz code for them.

The programmer at Microsoft that wrote that botched code for Windows 8 should be embarrassed.
Send me what they were paying him. I can do better than that. biggrin.gif

It used to work perfect before, but I changed my motherboard so maybe that is the problem.

I love the new task manager, way better than that old outdated POS in Windows 7.
