Voltage problem maybe! Need help!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Okay my previous thread was about temperature, but I solved that by turning off overclocking. This is my first question. When I uninstalled easy tune 6 My cpu said it was still at 3.8ghz instead of standard 3.4 under computer properties. By the way specs are

Z77X-UD3H
gtx 660 ti
intel 3570k

So I don't know why it did this because it said that the cpu clock was set to 3.4ghz in bios. I'm completely new to all this stuff so I'm still trying to get a bit of a better understanding for it. I ran 'without' overclocking for a while but decided I wanted to boost my fps in gaming again. Because I uninstalled easy tune, I tried using the bios. Set the O/C at 4.3 and these are the recorded results with different programs




The temperatures are staying pretty constant with Prime 95 running, but it's sacrificing for Frame rate. I'm getting the same frames as before I overclocked. Also before I opened the game, my core speed was fluctuating between 1600 mhz and the clocked 4300, but as soon as I opened it it stayed at 4.3, why is this? And why am I at the same frame rate, and also why has the temperature dropped? I'm not too sure being a newbie and all, but I think it's to do with voltage? Can someone please tell me how I can get the most out of my overclock while maintaining stable temperatures? Any ideas or suggestions are appreciated

Thanks

Unless the game is being held back by the CPU, which is pretty uncommon, you aren't going to see any performance increase from overclocking,  So that explains the frame rates being the same.

 

When your system is idle, the CPU speed will drop down to 1600 (for power saving), but it'll often jump back up again as there is normally some kind of small load on the system (background processes).  So it's normal for the speed to fluctuate at idle.  When you run the game the CPU will speed up to full speed.

 

And the temps are closely related to voltage, so the lower the voltage (as long as it is stable) the lower the temps will be.

No but my computer is only a month old, and I used to get alot more frames than I do now. That was my issue

As Forceman stated, it is highly unlikely that your CPU is holding you back from maximum framerate, the 3570k eats most games on stock settings without a hiccup, it would take a really robust graphics setup to turn the CPU into a bottleneck. It would be helpful if you would fill out rigbuilder and put your system in your signature so we could check your system specs. Also, is there anything that has changed other than the overclock? Have you installed new graphics drivers? Game updates? Have you changed the resolution that you are playing your games at? Turned on Anti Aliasing?

sometimes when you uninstall easy tune you have to clear your cmos on the motherboard to clear the previous OC settings easy tune did for you, try that and report back.
