    Question Alternating between base speed and boost speed

    So I've installed a new cooler on my Ryzen 5 5600 and it's running so cool I've decided to overclock it but I can not figure out how to just overclock the boost speed and leave the base speed alone, for example leaving the base speed at 3.5ghz when I'm not playing games but when I am the CPU...

    Question Is my CPU overlocked? If not, hw can it go above it's base speed?

    Hi. As far as i know, my CPU, AMD A4-9120e, is locked and it can not be overlooked. When I open Windows Task Manager and go to Performance, it shows that the base speed is 1.50Ghz (Base speed: 1.50 GHz). However, the CPU's speed can be below or above 1.50 GHz. If I leave the system idle, it may...

    [SOLVED] CPU Goes up to 4.6-4.9Ghz, then falls below clock speed (3.60Ghz) And never recovers.

    Problem is in the title. It happened while Idle. Right after i did a system scan w/ BitDefender (I know Windows is enough but im not the one paying for Bit) Temps were fine when it hit 4.9Ghz I havent messed with anything with the BIOS. All changes were made by MSI. MSI AEGIS RS PRE-BUILT...

    [SOLVED] can I make my CPU run at regular speeds while having max processor state capped?

    When I have my max processor state capped, the speeds my system is able to run are capped too. 95% cap only lets me run at 2.09GHz, 99% cap only lets me run at 2.19GHz while my CPU is capable of turbo boosting to 4GHz. When I uncap it, I have power limit throttling issues and a lot of CPU...

    [SOLVED] CPU 8700K Speed vs Performance

    Hi, I would like to know if lowering a CPUs speed could increase temps because the workload it could accomplish is diminished so it has to work harder then when it was at a higher speed like 4.5GHz vs 4.7GHz??? Btw, the voltages are with in .20mv so not much difference their.
