My 11700KF has been fine for almost a year, and even a few hours ago. I just tried launching a game and I got really bad FPS so I went to check on Speccy and Task Manager to see what was going on. I had only 4 cores and 8 threads activated, and my CPU was 90C! I tried going through my bios, and the msconfig trick and it still shows I only have 4 cores. What can I do?
