CPU Multiplier dropping to 4X under load?

1909 Views 13 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  Lagpirate

I was running prime 95 and cpu-z then after a while the cpu multiplier and voltage dropped to 4X (800MHz) and 1.1V. it did this briefly a few times at first them it basically stayed at these settings, because of that I put it down to heat. at that point the cpu was at 49C. Before any asks, I have AMD cool n quiet disabled.

How can I stop this from happening, any setting in the BIOS?

Grab ThrottleStop, check the box that says "More Data" at the bottom and see if your multiplier or VID changes while under load. It is 20x more accurate at reading those things at a very high rate. Not saying CPU-Z isn't accurate, but it updates is very large intervals to ensure easier validations. It uses an average of the last second or 3 to get the readings, ThrottleStop updates 8x second if you click on the More Data button. See if it is still doing it with that software.

Edit: Doh, just realized you are on an AMD CPU, it may not work with them. If it doesn't, use RealTemp, as it updates speeds/temps, etc pretty fast too.
