PC Question

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I'm running a 2600x with it's stock cooler, but getting between 2-3 GHz (it's base speed is 3.6 GHz). I have an MSI Gaming Pro Carbon AC motherboard and a Corsair RM850x. Not sure why this should be happening, any ideas?

 

By the way, I am aware that an 850 watt power supply is overkill for a 2600x, but its all I could find due to coronavirus.CPU..JPG.b154b082f8e0fa0db44fd440791798e7.JPG

Is this during any load? CPU's under clock them selves to save power when the performance is not needed. This can however be changed.


At me or quote me, I want to hear your opinion.

It's during the Folding@Home workload, and getting about 40% utilization

looks like normal boosting and clock behavior.

It's not fully loaded so it doesn't have a reason to boost that high as it can perform the task at max speed with the lower clock.

well its worth noting that one of the cores are actually running at 4ghz in the screenshot he sent........

So if I put it to near max utilization I would get a higher clock speed? If so, how would I test that? Is there a software for that?

If it's not being fully utilized and only one core is

Then that's the only core that'll boost to said frequency.


Fun Fact: The Meshify c is the best case to ever exist.

prime95 or similar. 

 

 

it will then run at around all cores at just above base clock, or base clock. if it doesnt detect it as a powervirus. 

 

can also just run cinebench r15 or r20

OK, thanks! New to all of this, so I'm glad there's forums!

should also use Hwinfo for monitoring stuff.
