I bought my first K cpu. It sits in a msi z370 a-pro. I'd search for a few posts here and there and i see that the ppl are getting 5ghz with this cpu. Well im not shooting for that far, I would be satisfied with a 4.5 ghz, (not so extreme) and the understanding of the tunning i change.
So i began to learn and test a few hours ago and im a bit stuck mostly because of lack of knowledge in which i would like to ask your help. So some of the posts said it is far than enough to just set the multipler to 45 and thats it. I installed prime95, and HWMonitor aswell. So after this change has been made it shows the correct amount of 4,5 ghz on all the cores, however if i start the small ffts torture test it immediately dropping voltage and mhz to 3,8-3,9 ghz.
So i started to set manually the voltage instead of auto starting from 1,165 at this point one of the cores said workers stopped, on 1,185 or 1,2 nothing stopped but it lowered the mhz to 3600, which later on i googled that there is a thing called AVX something about generating unnecessary heat by prime95 and its dropping mhz with the 900 mhz. So i set it to 0 but still nothing really changes.
Then i found options like dynamic or fixed ratio mode and other stuff which made me confused a little thats why im here providing as many information as i could get under this few hours from 0, trying to understand how things are working.
Here are some pictures of the possible options in the bios
Now i do have to tell, that after i set it to like 4,5 i probably wont change a thing so i just have to set it 1 time in my career so sorry if i might sound noob or misunderstood anything so far.
