Confussed on what speed my FX 8350 is currently operating at..

post #1 of 6

opo3TNOl.png

As you can see all three programs are saying my 8350 is running at 3 different speeds... Windows task manager says 2.48ghz, cpu-z says 1.4ghz, and core temp says 3.9ghz..

When I do something cpu-z will report 4ghz-4.1ghz, windows task manager will say 3.5ghz-4.2ghz, and core temp stays strong with reporting 3.9ghz....

I'm totally lost lol.

Out side of that, my 8350 appears to be running like a champ.. 100+ fps in WoW, 120fps in sc2... 300fps in cs:go....

You likely have something like cool and quiet enabled, which will throttle back your CPU when it is idle to conserve energy. There are some other BIOS options on certain motherboards that cause false readings and/or throttling, but it's usually cool and quiet. If your performance is great, I wouldnt worry about.

Yes, I'm pretty confident that it's the power saving features enabled in you're motherboard's bios, turn off the following if you have them... Cool And Quite, C1E and HPC Mode.
Just research into your bios's power saving features. Good luck biggrin.gif

Ooo, alright! I'll go digging into my motherboard and turn those off and see if that helps!

I turned off cool and quiet and c1e. Hpc was already disabled. That appeared to have fixed it! Everything reports 4ghz-4.2ghz now!

Thanks guys!
