i7-8700k 4.3GHz stuck

Go to solution Solved by unclewebb,

Try using the Windows Balanced power plan. Reset this to default settings. This will allow your CPU to slow down when lightly loaded if that is what you want it to do.

If this does not work, open the Task Manager and find out what is running on your computer. Post a screenshot of the Details tab.

Hello, I got issue that my CPU GHz are stuck, and they don't go up and don't go down, does not matter what I doing is same for idle and gaming, I was trying to search information why I have this problem and how can I fix, but didn't find any information that would be helpful. I having this issue 1 week, In first I was thinking this was problem of "msconfig" but is not, I try to search maybe I have program recently installed that cause this issue but didn't find any program that can cause, I try to set to default my bios, but it didn't helped. Also from this stuck GHz my temperature got high, and this is why I wondering how to fix, In the past I didn't have this issue my CPU GHz was automatically going or is idle or gaming, maybe someone did have same issue like me, and know how to fix, I really be glad if anyone help me and fix this issue, because I can't find any information helpful that says how to fix, it's only same things with default bios, power plan, but for me it didn't effect anything.

I did like you say, now is sometimes drop so 1600 or 2000MHz and goes back to 4300-4400MHz, but like NZXT Cam shows is still stuck on 4400MHz, the HWINFO that some of the cores are stuck on 4400MHz, some of the are on 800Hz, the task manager don't show that is stuck on 4400MHz, is changing GHz, now don't know which one is right

It bounces around. Sounds like it's working as intended.
