Task manager showing wrong CPU speed

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Okay so, I have a core i3 3220 Overclocked to 3.6GHz, Task manager doesn't show the overclock speed, Nor does it even hit base clock, The cpu stays around 2.3-3.0GHz... When under 100% load it still doesn't even hit base speed (3.30Ghz) Other tools Show 3.6GHz even under no stress. Bios shows 3.6GHz as well.. Any ideas?

task manager is known to have issues reporting overclocked CPU speeds


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 thread, BR/BT threadSeasonic Focus thread, S12II/M12II thread, Userbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions

Well it's not much more than misinformation, doesn't harm anything.

If it's Home 10 then it's another feature that causes the feature.


... but I'm no expert

Yeah i know its not going to harm anything but i'd like to see what speed i'm actually running at Lol.. And what other feature can you think would cause this?

Windows itself seems to have the feature embedded.

CPU-Z or some other program would show right numbers.

Use CPU-Z or any other decent monitoring software. Like I said in linked post, this bug has been there since Microsoft reworked Task Manager. And you can track how many times people have posted about it using our search tool.
