CPUZ suggests a problem? Help needed


Distinguished Member
Hope someone can help, I am a little baffled with this one. I noticed today when looking over CPUZ that under the CPU tab, my clocks are changing information every few seconds.

My core speed jumps from

2664 mhz at a 10x multiplier to

1594.9 mhz at a 6x multiplier :confused:

The bus speed remains stable and I have not noticed a speed problem when using the system and to be honest....... I am not even sure if this is normal or not..

Please can someone advise.

Some CPUs, especially those in found in Laptops are able to change their performance envelope according to the demands being made on them - to conserve battery power/reduce heat. Neat isn't it?

Thanks for the reply, just found a website which was useful explaining. I do not have a laptop but my board just reduces things down to cool things when not much is going on. I just ran a blue-ray through the system and had some other stuff running and CPUZ showed a stable clock at the correct speed. :)

Go into the Bios and disable CE1, also if you have speed step and spread spectrum listed disable these as well. This will stop your mobo throttling back your multiplier. :)
