6800k drops OC

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So there is a bit of an issue with my cpu. I've used to run my 6800k @4.2ghz (1.225v) but few days ago (after last windows update) I've noticed a bit of a drop of fps; after quick stress test it turned out that all bios settings were brought back to default (3.6ghz cpu, 2133mhz ram, even fancurves). So i tweaked all setting to the point at which they were beforehand but... in windows I'm still running my cpu @3.6ghz (which is stock). So I turned down multiplier a bit (to 4.1ghz) and turned up voltage (to 1.245v)... and in HWM I'm running at 3.4ghz while in stresstest. The hell is happening?

Did you update your BIOS? Windows update does not have anything to do with BIOS and clock speeds.

 

Anyhow, update BIOS (or reflash it) and try to re-apply the overclock.

BIOS is updated but I'm bit of afraid of reflashing it (frequent powerlosses in my city)
