Help with i3-4330 SpeedStep issue

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm having this odd issue where my clock maxes out at 1.7GHz instead of the 3.5GHz its supposed to, as seen here: (also my motherboard is the MSI B85-G41)

now if I completely disable speedstep it fixes the issue however I of course now have it constantly running at max speed, is there a fix for this? also on a side note as shown below it hits 60C+ quite fast, I read its fairly normal, is that correct?

Thanks, any help is appreciated.

Have you tried stress testing it to see if you are correct? Meaning, perhaps it is turboing to 3.5GHz but you are just not seeing it do that.

Try a stress test like Intel Burn Test or Linpack LinX. Run it and see if it turbos to 3.5GHz. 1.7GHz sounds like it's throttle frequency when there is no load on the CPU.

You can also try Prime 95 stress test, this should put your CPU into Turbo mode and get it to the Clocks you've set.

I feel as if I should ask... did you even look at those pictures? because yes, I ran the stress test built into the MSI extreme tuning utility (also Prime95) and it was running at 100% cpu usage, also the idle state sits around 1GHz for whatever reason even at 100% usage it won't go past 1.7GHz though...

I tried Prime95, didn't really do anything different unless it has to be running for a good while to kick in, which would be weird and as far as I'm aware the i3s don't actually have any sort of Turbo mode whatsoever.. right? oh and the clocks I've set? well if you didn't know 3.5GHz is the stock speed for it, not that I could OC an i3 much anyway.

Not familiar with the MSI tuning utility so I wasn't aware that it was stress testing. Have you tried resetting the bios? What options does your motherboard allow you to change? I assume it is very limited but there's another thing you could try.

You could try playing with C-States. Try this configuration:

Enhanced Halt State (C1E): Enabled
CPU C3 State Support: Disabled
CPU C6 State Support: Disabled
Package C State Support: Disabled

well that was the reason I put the first pic there, just so that people know it was running at 100%
yeah it doesn't allow me to change too much, it does let me play a bit with the C-states though..

let me enable C1E
no real options to disable states, however it does give me the option to limit the C states (played with this and changed it a few times, no success though..)
did not see any sort of package option

Thanks anyway, but I guess I'll just run it without Speedstep enabled, its not that big a deal.
