The trouble you are having isn't exactly uncommon, https://www.google.com/#q=windows+10+task+manager+shows+wrong+cpu+speed
I tried to help you to the best of my abilities. Take it or leave it.


Its a cosmetic thing anyways. Just because Task manger doesn't show the overclocked CPU speed, doesn't mean that your CPU isn't running at the speed you set in the BIOS, provided you did it correctly.


Edit:-


I am aware they are different. As I said, I don't have access to my PC, so I don't know the exact name of the setting, off by a bit. But it is located exactly where I said it is. And there is only 1 setting there of that type, not 2 (one for VT-x & one for VT-d).
And for the reasoning to my suggestion, look above.

Thanks for help

Wonder how many of the users who enabled VT-d were running a compatible hypervisor?

OK. I tried front and back audio same problem with white noise. Only PCIe device I have connected is Geforce 770. I do not have another PSU.

Unplug the FP cable from the board and try the rear output again. If you have a mic connected, remove that also. See if the noise is still there. I would even try without the GPU inserted (use onboard graphics) to see if the noise is related. Outside that, not much I can suggest. Good luck

Thanks for the reply to my question on Intel Rapid Storage Technology, Menthol.

More on subject of over-clocking (and I know these are really basic questions for most of you)... On my UEFI screen in EZ-mode I notice my RAM is listed as 2133MHz in the RAM area, but I have 3400MHz installed. Just above that area under Information, I see it's running at 2933MHz. Is that normal for it to be listed as 2133MHz in the Ram area, instead of 3400MHz?

I'm still reading the sticky thread "Skylake Overclocking Guide" and looking around on AI Suite 3... But based on what I've read (and on the question in my first paragraph), am I wrong in thinking that when it comes to over-clocking the CPU; when you buy a 4.00GHz CPU you get 4.00GHz out of the box, and any over-clocking raises it above 4.0GHz. And when it comes to DRAM, my first goal is over-clocking to get to the 3400MHz it's rated at, and the second goal is to possibly exceed it?

Yes - the ram's base "speed" is 2133.
Select XMP mode to get the ram runing at it's rated speed. alternatively, lots of folks here can help with manual overclocking the memory. on z170, any ram speed above 2133 is considered an overclock.

Gotta say.... I ran this M8E/6600K at 4.8GHz and 1.490V with a GTX980Ti KP running 1560GHz for 8 days straight in the folding wars... B***s-out folding. Not a single hiccup! Not one.

Awesome!!! Thanks so much for the help. I set the EZ_XMP switch on the mobo and when I got to UEFI, it had already changed my XMP setting to Profile #1. UEFI initially locked up on me (mouse wouldn't move) but after powering down, it seemed okay the second time. Then the first time opening Win7, it rebooted. Been running great since, and I think I'm falling in love with my 'puter. This thing is getting really fast in Win7 compared to what I'm used to. UEFI is showing that the RAM is running at 3474Mhz (16-18-18-38-1.35V). smile.gif Can't wait to play with OC'ing the CPU. Based on the couple of glitches I initially had, I'm probably going to need to stress test it and maybe do some manual tweaking as you suggested.

But first, I'm anxious to re-install my 950 NVMe M.2 drive and load Win10 on it properly. Spent the past 10 days getting Win 7 installed on my SanDisk 480GB and back to where I was 4 months ago (when my old PC puked).

I do have a question based on the i7-6700K Overclocking Overview sticky thread. I've read not to use AI Suite 3 for making changes to UEFI. The sticky thread seems to imply that I can use AI Suite 3 to "get me close" to where I need to be in UEFI, and manually make the changes while in UEFI. However, when I run the 5-Way Optimization, it acts like it's going to change the settings because it warns me about several reboots. How can I run the Optimization without it actually making changes to my UEFI?

Thanks again,
Kix

I just updated my asus z170-a to bios version 1602. Haven't noticed any difference. Also with this board are you able to install your os on a samsung 950 pro ssd ? I think I remember reading the board having a bug with m.2 ssd.
