Have a look below at my 2700x in Windoz 10 Task Manager. It shows Base speed of 3.7GHz while under load at 4.2GHz.
This is normal. It is displaying Base speed only.

You should see a more realistic value under Speed in task manager.
Inaccuracy is due to no physical sensor to read Bclk, most mobo's use a logarithm to calculate Bclk.
This is why (in my case) my Speed reads low as it's using 99.8MHz Bclk instead of actual 100MHz.

Hope this is of some help.

Is that with a FX8320? Do you have Core Boost enabled? If you do turn it off.

Add Voltage through + Offset
Enable C'n'Q + in Windows set Power plan to Balanced
HPC Mode - Enable
Tighten subtimings
OC FX through FSB
If U are to OC your RAM set DRAM Voltage 1.65V
CPU LLC - Ultra high
CPU/NB LLC - High
CPU Current Capability - 130
CPU/NB - II- -II- - 120
CPU Power Phase Control - Optimised
CPU Power Response Control - High
CPU/NB - I I - - Regular
CPU Power Thermal Control 140-150
DRAM Current Capability - 130
DRAM Voltage Frequency - 350
install a fan to blow on VRM

I hope this will help you with this, you have to find out how your FX and RAM behave. I had three different FX and none was the same.
Thank you very much!
Minding a NB HT link overclock, seems to give very interesting results in some games that's why i'm stuck at 4.05 ghz.
Got a fan on top hs of VRM, seems it's working good, temp on the Board (sabertooth r.2) are 40 & 45°C on VRM 1 & VRM 2 (HW INFO).
About ram, trying to OC stable @ 2050 mhz with 11-12-11-34 timings.
I'm trying to have relaxed frequencies cause i prefere less heat and more problem correlated with it.
Playing only some esport at the moment and i would like to understand if some old cpu like this can still handle or they were cutted off as some site or people said in some famous site.

Diwiak Its MSIs B450 Tomahawk - offset voltage is shown in bios under voltage control but can not make it to work-when used, it use some strange fixed voltage value

Works on my Gaming K7. I think MSI does not implement working offset voltage on their boards, and probably others also have some special quirks like that.

Melcar Depends on the board and quality. Offset usually lets you keep power saving options on, so there is that too. You just need to figure out the actual stock vcore that is being applied. It will change slightly depending on the CPUs model and even revision (not to mention that the board itself may overvolt a bit).

Diwiak You have to use "offset" voltage, find the sweet spot, enable CnQ - was working for me with FX6300 (Asus m5a97 EVO R2.0), just disable/dont use hibernate/sleep.
For other bios setup use values from ASUS/FX overclock guide here at overclock.net

ct65 Offset mode is problematic, at least in my case. In the first post the author recommends offset or manual V, I also recommend manual. No problem, my 8320 is based on a 22x multiplier (4.4GHz) at 1.392V. Under load 100% temp socket max 72 degrees C, CPU 57 degrees C.
