  1. Question Unable to clock memory to 3000MHz (Stuck at 2133MHz) (BIOS not working?)

    Hello and thank you for taking the time to read, I'm having some trouble getting my RAM to run at the supported speed. the ram is rated for 3000MHz, and my motherboard supports it at 2933MHz, but I can't get it ro run faster than the STD speed of 2133MHz. I've tried to address this in BIOS...

    Question my cpu is running at max clock speed when idling

    intel i7-9700 Task manager says the clock speed is when at its lowest 1,5 Ghz and highest 3,99 Ghz
  3. Question Are the Number of Cores/Threads and Core Clock the two only things that matter when talking about CPU?

    Are the Number of Cores/Threads and Core Clock the two only things that matter when talking about how strong a CPU? If so, does it mean that i5 10400f is faster than i5 11400f? They have the same number of cores/threads but 10400f's clock speed is faster. That's impossible!

    Question My CPU is at max clock speed when idle, but goes below base clock speed when under a heavy load.

    My issue is that when my PC is under a heavy load, the clock speeds actually go below my base clock speed, and when I'm at idle it stays around it's maximum but fluctuates quite a bit. My initial thoughts are that this is because of thermal throttling, but my temperatures are the same as they...
  5. Question i7-8750h C0% Abnormally High

    I tried undervolting my CPU using throttlestop but I noticed that the C0% level is usually hovering over 10 which is very high, and there are no tasks taking up that much power besides system idle according to my task manager. On top of that, my clock speed is always much higher than the base...

    Question i5 9300h doesn't touching it's full potential

    Recently I have bought a acer aspire 7 laptop with i5 9300H + GTX1650 Gddr6, and when I'm stress testing cpu clock speed hovers between 3.3 MHz to 3.5 MHz but hw monitor showing that cpu is on 100% load.. So what is the problem ???? Why my cpu doesn't run on 4 GHz? N.B.- Temps are around 70-75°c

    Question Ryzen 5 3600 low clock speed?

    Hi everyone. My ryzen 5 3600 has a base clock speed of 3.6 GHz. Checking from windows activity monitor I noted that - on idle - the speed is lower: it oscillates from 2.4 to 3.4. The speed reach (and pass) 3,6 only if it is on stress. Is that normal? Shouldn't 3.6 always be the lowest bound...
  8. [SOLVED] Graphics card (rx560m) is stuck at 214mhz

    Hello, I've been having trouble with my graphics card recently. No matter what application I launch and how demanding it is the graphics card will not start clocking higher resulting in poor performance and my frustration. It is stuck like that a couple days by now. It has happened before but...

    [SOLVED] CPU Core Clock Fluctuating on i7 10700K. is it Normal?

    the CPU core (on all 8 cores) clock speed is constantly fluctuating between 800MHz to 5,200MHz at Idle and also under load, I think. is this behavior normal and safe for the CPU? I'm using HWINFO64 to monitor and my CPU is an i7 10700k.

    [SOLVED] What's better for low-end web development (mobile processor)

    Hi! I am getting a low-end laptop for me to use when I go away from my home, or to relax elsewhere rather than my desktop. I was wondering, would a 4 core 1.8GHz processor be better than I 2 core at 2.1 GHz, I'm pretty sure it is the 4 core because it is a better multitasker and the clock speeds...

    [SOLVED] Is there any way to have my CPU throttle down at idle to reduce temps and noise?

    Hello, I just recently built my first PC and am a bit inexperienced in regards to controlling the system. I am running a Ryzen 7 3800x which has a base clock of 3.9 GHz. My issue is that the CPU is constantly running at this clock speed. Now I understand (based on recent searches) that this...

    [SOLVED] i5 6400 not turbo boosting under load?

    Hi, so I have an i5-6400 for 2 years now. Its base clock is 2.7 GHz and turbo is 3.3 GHz. Recently I found out by looking in the task manager and after that checking in the CPU-Z also, that while I play games my cpu is boosting only to 3.08 GHz and no more. Also when I run a stress test in CPU-Z...

    Question R9 390 Clock Speed Dropping Randomly?

    CPU: i5-6600k GPU: R9 390 During Call of Duty Modern Warfare I'm seeing my clock speed drop to 300MHz which causes a massive stutter. I using up-to-date drivers (20.3.1) My temps are fine, always around 55C. The stutter is consistent with the clock speed dip. Also my GPU usage spikes from 0-100...

    Question Looking to buy an Xeon CPU for my 1150 board as an upgrade

    One thing I'd like to ask is I will probably go anything over the 1230 v3, the only difference between the higher models is the clock speed by like 100-300 mhz, i think the max is 4ghz. Is it worth the extra £10-40 difference with only 100-300 mhz difference or should I just get the 1230 /...
