3 cores only on Intel Core i5‑6600K and Asus z170-A

post #1 of 4

______________________________________

Hello.

I'm not a smart overclocker so I use the EZ-Tuning WIzard in my Bios to get my 6600K to around 4.3Ghz. When checking on CPUz, I now hover around 3.6Ghz even when using the EZtuning Wizard, and it reports only 3 processors and 3 threads. Is it possible a core died?

I've disabled Turbo and Speedstep.

I'm concerned. Help would be highly appreciated and with reps. THANKS!

It wouldn't boot after trying that. Anyway. I ended up reinstalling Windows 10 and now everything is fine. wink.gif
