Crysis not maxing out core frequency!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Whilst playing SP on very high settings, I've realised that the cores only reach 3400mhz, but in applications such as Cinebench, Prime95/IBT, the cores do max out at the 4.5ghz OC I've achieved. Anyone know why this is? I found this out using HWiNFO64.

Single player is much less cpu intensive so you're gpu bound. The processor will only clock as high as it needs. In cinebench it's only testing the CPU performance so the processor clocks up to it's maximum set speed.

To make sure this is what's happening, uncap your fps and set all graphics settings to low. This should make your processor clock up a bit more if not all the way.
