CPU OC NOT SAVING

Go to solution Solved by Hold-Ma-Beer,

The CMOS battery might be dead.

Hi guys

 

I just replaced my i5 9600K with an i7 9700k and i can t figure out how to save the oc. 

In bios, everything is saved to 5.0 ghz, but in desktop, when i open cpu-z it shows the lower speed. I also validate the result and its still 3.6 ghz.

I deactivate c-state and turbo mode (even if on the i5 it wasn t the case), the oc settings are the same as they were for the i5.

The thing is, even if i try to put 4.2 ghz, its still not saving, but my voltage is saved in cpu z. What in the hell?

I have a noctua ndh 15 or something like that. You know the cooler. 

 

I m using an ASUS PRIME Z390 P MOBO.

 

What should i do?

Thx.

how did it die in the process of changing the cpu?

You can check the battery using a battery tester that can measure the voltage of a button cell battery. Don't try to use a voltmeter as there won't be any load put on the button cell battery.

Then you can just try to use a new battery and see if it works.

You have the old "dead" battery with you right? Usually they are CR2032 style button cell batteries, check yours for reference on the + side.

Ok, that should be fine though.

Lets not get to that point just yet...Are your turbo boost clocks set to auto? Anything related to turboing the core clocks would be helpful.

yes, i think the turbo is on. I think i have 2 turbo options and i don t know which one is on or off.

Basically, i just replaced the cpu 2 hours ago. It was overclocked for the i5 9600k. 

Maybe i need to reset the bios to the factory settings? But idk how to do that...

Advance/cpu configuration/cpu - power management control - turbo is on

c state is off

Ai tweaker/ internal cpu power management - turbo mode enable

And i have another problem. In cpu z, it shows me that i have 6 cores/ 6 threads.

what the hell?

Definitely try and clear CMOS as that is an issue this should resolve. It appears good in BIOS right?

Yes, in bios where i have the input values for the core clocks, i can count 8 core sections. But in CPU Z, it tells me i have 6 cores and 6 threads?!

How do i clear the CMOS?

Well it should have been cleared when you pulled the CMOS battery and replaced it...What does the OS report? You can check in Device Manger-> Processors. Each one listed is a thread of your CPU.

also, in user benchmark, my cpu is 6 cores, 6 threads.

Back in Device Manager for Processors, did it list i7-9700k or the i5-9600k? If it still lists the i5-9600k but for 8 threads, try uninstalling device for them and reboot. It appears to be a bug.
