Overclock says 2.93 in Bios but 2.66 in Dxdiag?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Small question but in this I had used AI Overclocking on my motherboard to overclock at 10% the CPU says it was running at 2.93 GHZ but in dxdiag it still said the Stock of 2.66 GHZ. So the question is does Dxdiag just list the hardware when it's at stock or did the OC fail somehow?

Also does a E6750 from 2.66-2.93 GHZ sound safe?

Its a very conservative overclock - and the DXdiag just reads what the hardware is not what it currently is - always use something such as CPUZ to check for true core speed

Run CPU-z and a CPU stress tester at the same time. Whatever CPU-Z displays during full load is your speed! Good Luck!
