Windows 7: constant CPU spikes when gaming/watching video

Processor Setting Missing
skip the registry edit part, check the other methods. From page 2, disable C1E, login, restart, enable C1E may work.

What was the power plan? Enable Hifg Performance nevertheless.

Ok, download HWInfo (HWiNFO, HWiNFO32 & HWiNFO64 - Hardware Information, Analysis and Monitoring Tools) and start with sensors.

Check Core Clock values, do they fluctuate or stay stable? What's the clock value if stable?

I don't know if I should be looking at core clock or core usage, my clock is about 3700 MHz to 3900 MHz, my usage is is 00.0 to 78 averaging about low 20s

You should check Core Clock, since clock is 3700-3900 - turbo is still active.

Can you also go into BIOS and disable Turbo (clock should drop to 3500)? If it doesn't help you can enable it later.

Do you see anything in Task manager when the spikes happen? Sort by CPU to see.

Na, I wasn`t trying to do this, then you`re constantly at that speed, a true OC, but no, that`s not what you want.

All I wanted you to do was raise the Turbo ratio on each core to 4.0 GHz, that way each and every core can turbo up to 4.0 GHz when it needs to, instead of the stock numbers.

On an MSI board you want to find CPU features, in the OC section, near the bottom.

Your manual should explain it.

I had an MSI Z77A so.....

When you go into the bios, do you have different options for a normal mode, an OC, an OC Genie ?

If you go into the OverClock section you should be able to scroll down, you want to find something to sync all cores, if you enable that each of the cores might show up and you could change each core, I had to scroll down to a heading labeled CPU Features, when I clicked on that I could see each cores ratio, then I could set them to what I wanted.

What cpu cooler are you using ?

Dude runs an MSI gaming board, maybe he can help us.

I`ll PM him.
