Help needed. CPUZ

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hi im new to o/c but have read quite a few articles and looked on here for info.I have installed MSI Afterburner, Core Temp, CPU-Z.
I decided to have a go at my first o/c bios was showing 133x23 3059. I have the i7 950 3.06Mhz. I have seen this go up to 3.3Mhz but guessing that was the turbo mode stepping in. Core Temp and CPU-Z were running the same stats on CPU speed.
I ran CCleaner before starting to o/c messed around with the settings but didnt want to fry anything and I landed at 161x23 3703 but am seeing gains around 3850Mhz on core temp when loaded and stepping down to 2600Mhz.
CPUZ on the other hand is showing 3800Mhz idle and 4333Mhz loaded. I think that CPUZ is showing the wrong info. I went back to the Bios and it was showing 3703 so that is why I think CPUZ is wrong.
The idle temps are between 35-40C so happy with the small gains.
Any ideas as to why CPUZ is not showing the right info?
Sorry if I sound a little dumb. But like I said my first o/c

do you have anything like Intel speedstep and intel turbo mode on? cause this could be the reason that it jumps in CPU-Z also

+1. I'd say SpeedStep is enabled in BIOS.

I left all other settings to Auto and left speed step on. But there is a big difference between the two readings.

if you leave speedstep on it will cause the CPU to run in lower speeds then whats supposed to do and turbo mode ramps up the CPU clock when its needed like in games for that little extra performance its better just to turn intel speedstep and turbo mode off

I went back to the Bios after running MOH for 15mins and the CPU went up tp 90c. Went back to stock settings and CPUZ is STILL giving the wrong readings?

The multiplier is giving the wrong info at the moment it is say x25 yet core temp is giving x15? I def think it is CPUZ as I have no other applications running.

Did you turn off SpeedStep like we all recommended?

what he also could try to determine if its really speedstep try to load the CPU 100% and then look at CPU-Z

He did that (1st post). It went from 3800MHz idle to 4333MHz loaded.
