Windows 10 Not Recognizing All CPU Cores AND OC

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I bought a full version of Windows 10 Pro 64x for my sig rig. After it was installed and I got my basic programs up, I downloaded CPU-Z and it showed I only had 2 (out of 4) cores. Additionally, it showed that my OC was not enabled, even though it was in my BIOS. This was confirmed using Prime95.

 

I find this odd, because my other SSD, which contains Windows 7 Pro 64x, shows all my cores and OC running at optimal performance. This OS and SSD is also being used in my sig rig.

 

Google only showed a couple of Reddit threads regarding this issue with no fix for it. 

 

Here is a list of what I have tried so far to no avail:

 

1. Updated latest chipset drivers

2. Ran Intel Update Utility

3. Updated Windows 10 to latest version, along with all the other updates.

4. Reset BIOS, booted into Win 10, then switched back to my OC in BIOS.

 

 

If anyone has any insight I'd really appreciate it. I'd hate to revert back to Windows 7 for another 5 years!

 

Thanks!

Which cpu are we talking about?

Also you could check in msconfig, if all cores are enabled at startup.

- go to start type msconfig hit enter.
- Go to boot tab > advanced options.
- Check if all cores are enabled at startup,
you can also uncheck the box, which means all cores should be enabled at bootup.
- reboot system.

Edit: sorry didnt check the date of the topic.
I suppose its allready solved probably?
