XMP enabled on Gigabyte Gaming 7 overclocks CPU - Page 3

post #21 of 30
When you are in the BIOS, the CPU always has around 15% or more load resulting in what you said with the higher clock speed in BIOS.

I'm in Windows 10 now and viewing CPU-Z and it shows the processor is running at 4.2Gz, with some tiny fluctuations - it ranges from 4198MHz - 4202MHz.

The vcore is constantly fluctuating from 0.420v - 1.356. This is with EIST set to AUTO in the BIOS and XMP disabled.

My memory according to CPU-Z is running at 1066! Why is it running at 1066? It's supposed to be running at 2133.

EDIT: According to HWMonitor, "Gigabyte Technology Co. Ltd. > Voltages > CPU VCORE" is actually hovering between 1.66 - 1.76 mostly. The min is showing 0.496 and the high is showing 1.824.

Further down under "Intel Core I7 6700k > Voltages > VID" it's hovering around 1.26-1.35, with a low listed as 1.224v and a high of 1.394v.

Not sure which I"m supposed to pay attention to.

Because CPU-Z reports half the ram speed due to double data rate clock speed. It is actually running 2133MHz right now.

Also check if you are running the balanced windows power plan. You can check this via Control Panel > Power options. This might by why it's staying near 4.2 GHz constantly.

Ah yes, I forgot about that. I think I got tricked once before in CPU-z by that. Thanks for reminding me. Are those voltages okay then that HWMonitor is showing? I'm not sure which set of voltages I should be paying attention to - Gigabyte Technology Co. Ltd or Intel Core I7 6700k.

Do you have screenshots so I know specifically which voltage readings you are talking about?

VID is the requested CPU voltage from the CPU itself. The Core Voltage is a voltage reading from one of the voltage reading sensors on the motherboard. The core voltage from the motherboard is the one you should be paying attention to.

The general voltage readings you should take note of are:

- CPU Voltage (Core)
- VRIN Voltage (Eventual / Input)
- RING Voltage (Cache / Uncore)
- DRAM Voltage (Memory / RAM)

Optional voltages that aren't really that important as the ones above:
- VCCSA Voltage (System Agent)
- VCCIN Voltage (I think this is PCH? Not really sure)
- VCCIO Voltage (I/O Voltage)

Well then should I be concerned? VID shows max 1.394, hovering around 1.24v-1.28v with some spikes. CPU VCORE under the motherboard listing is all over the place, with a high of 1.744v. It goes as low as 0.200 and then instantly spikes to 1.500+v.

CPU-Z is showing different numbers at any given second but it might be due to different polling times?

Don't use HWMonitor, it's not accurate for Skylake CPU's right now. Hwinfo64 is better and seems to have been updated for Skylake. CPU-Z is accurate for Vcore, but you can't monitor other voltages with it.

HwMonitor does the same thing on my system -- says I am at 1.7 or 1.8v. I know for a fact this is inaccurate. Why? Because my CPU would instantly die if I were at 1.8V.

You can alternatively use HWinfo64 if it reports the correct Core voltage.

I installed HWinfo64. I'm not realy sure what to look for in terms of voltages. So many numbers.

Under "system summary", the VID reading under "CPU status" is constantly changing but hovers between 1.22 and 1.32 in idle.

Under "CPU status", clock and ratio both have lines - no data.

Open the Sensors window, or start in Sensors-only mode.
