2600k overclocks, but wrong reports in bios & cpu-z etc.

post #1 of 7

Hey

I can't get any overclock on 2600k to show anywhere

The CPU speed shown at bios POST and in windows (cpu-z and others) says 3400mhz no matter what..

Motherboard: Asus p8p67 pro
Ram: 2x4 GB Corsair Vengeance 1600mhz 9-9-9-24-2 CL9 1.5v

cpu-z (idle):
Core Speed: 1360 mhz
Multiplier: x 16
Bus Speed: 85 mhz

cpu-z (full prime95 load):
Core Speed: 3400 mhz
Multiplier: x 40 (or whatever is set in bios)
Bus Speed: 85 mhz

Bus speed is specifically set to 100mhz in bios

Also.. in cpu-z the DRAM freq. is 680mhz (single rate I know), but in bios and post screen says correctly 1600mhz.

But here's the thing... SuperPI calculation speed comparison clearly proves it IS overclocked..

Don't know what is causing all this faulty metering.. Windows, the bios, or maybe some hardware itself?

I have tried so many tips, guides and combinations. Resetting/updating bios, reset ram, you name it. No effect.

Anyone knows what to do or what is the cause?

Try this version of CPUZ it reports the correct values for me http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/...fo/CPU-Z.shtml

Have you tried ASUS own utility monitoring software?

It's reading the bus speed in-correctly (i hope) because 85MHz x 40 = 3400MHz.

If this new version of CPUz reads the same, i'd start thinking that your bus speed is stuck at 85MHz.

Under specification it will always say 3.4ghz, you also need to enable in bios ratio change, this will disable turbo boost. Or just disable turbo boost and the OC multiplier you post should show up when you save settings and get back into windows to check cpuz.

UPDATE
This worked!:
Uninstall cpu-z, REBOOT, and reinstall
Maybe I unsuccessfully installed the beta on top of the regular before

Wooohooo, it works. No more headache hehe
Thanks all
