Oddly enough, yes. All are showing 45%.

Turbo boost at 4.2GHZ, CPU clock rate at 42, the bottom four power options/c-states all disabled, vcore 1.190. Everything else is set to default. Still 45% with prime 95 at 1.54GHZ speed, maximum states 3.5GHZ but never reaches it and should state 4.2. frown.gif I guess I will try reflashing and clearing the cmos with the same bios file. I really wouldn't want to downgrade bios version because it has the new intel UEFI rom and new ivy bridge microcode.

Edit: Reflashed with same bios, issue still occurs. frown.gif

I mean this:


I am using high performance power option. Both min and max processor state are set at setting: 100%.

do you have speedstep set to on in bios? also any power saving features?

I can't see anything wrong in your screenshots. I'd guess it's the BIOS version. Go back to stable F6 or F5 and test with that: http://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte/28441-gigabyte-latest-beta-bios-11.html#post274647

Also... are you sure 4.5ghz works with the vcore you've set? Or are these your first experiments and you've jumped to 4.5ghz without trying lower multipliers?

I have already tried disabling all power saving features and manually setting vcore instead of an offset value.

The vcore I manually set, 1.190, I know works with 4.2ghz as it worked before this issue started to occur. I wanted to overclock with offset values and loadline calibration, so I looked up a generic guide someone set up for 4.5ghz and went forward from there. :/ I booted into windows with those setting (in the first post images), so I figured it was stable enough to start testing. I'll go back a bios version to test. Perhaps it is an issue with the new ivy bridge microcode?

what cooler do you have? you might be hitting thermals so fast that it downclocks right away showing half speed.
