Real temp throttling 4930k

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I've been trying to figure this one out. I just upgraded to a 4930k and decided to start at 4.5ghz overclock. My method is to throw up real temp and cpuid cpuz to start up so I can see if I'm within my safe-zone for voltages/temps/ect. The problem that would happen though is that I would watch my multiplier drop from 45 to 34 within seconds of getting to my desktop. Eventually I put 1+1 together and noticed that when realtemp popped up is when the multiplier would drop. I tested it a couple of times and it was indeed realtemp. So obvious fix was just to not use realtemp for now.
So two questions:

Does real temp have some sort of overclock abliity that could affect my oc.

Whats a good alternative that would work with ivybridge-e for temps?


Thanks.

HWinfo64 is a good alternative but it only reports avg temp on the fly as far as I know.

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind when I get back home.

It also reports min, max and current temps.

Have a look in the RealTemp - Settings window. If you have Disable Turbo checked then your CPU will run at the default multiplier which is 34 for the 4930K.

http://ark.intel.com/products/77780/Intel-Core-i7-4930K-Processor-12M-Cache-up-to-3_90-GHz?q=4930

All modern Core i CPUs use Turbo Boost to go beyond the default multiplier. Some bios versions might lead you to believe differently. They might give you an option to overclock using a high multiplier and they might even allow you to turn off turbo boost in the bios but when you click on Save, the bios sees that you want a high multi which requires Turbo Boost so Turbo Boost gets turned back on within the CPU. When you boot up into Windows a user thinks that Turbo Boost is turned off because that is what they chose in the bios but the reality is that Turbo Boost was automatically turned back on.

Yea, I kept checking different settings. First I wondered if I turned off the turbo. Then I checked to see if I didn't up the cpu current protection. Checked to see if asus added a tdp protection setting (as the new 4403 bios changes the uefi layout a bit). I spent a good couple of hours checking/ goggle-ing. All the settings seemed pretty close to my sb-e.

If I don't open real temp my overclock sticks. The updated cpu-z reads everything fine. I can leave speedstep enabled and I can see the multiplier move between 12-45. The second realtemp is opened the multiplier drops down to 34 and will then bounce between 12-34 (although cpu-z will show that the range is still 12-45).

Its an easy enough fix( just don't open rt), but know I want something to still monitor cpu temps while I check my oc stability. I'll give HWinfo64 a spin when I get a chance.
