Windows 7: Cpu speed

Cpu speed

Clock speed on my cpu seems to be wrong. I have not overclocked the cpu yet. but its showing it at 1600.0 mhz and supposed to be at 2400 mhz. Or am I wrong?

You processor is probably lowering its speed while its not under extensive use. This saves power and reduces heat while the system is not requiring full power.

Yea i retested after i started a game running on other monitor and it jumped up to 2400 mhz. Anyone know what is a safe reliable clock speed for this cpu?

I'm running mine at 2.6 but it will depend on your MOB and cooling. All systems seem to have their sweet point and you just need to experiment. But if you want reliability increase the cooling and leave the CPU alone. IMO

You prolly no this already but when you OC be sure to up the voltages accordingly too Just a friendly reminder

You probably have your power option set to 'balanced' or 'power saver' either of these modes will underclock your CPU when it is not in use for energy saving and immediately jump to full clock when the juice is required.

nope, but dont max it out straight away, cuz more then likely it wont boot, or will sizzle into a nice pile of melted plastic X)

Are you doing the voltages too? ram? if you aren't sure hot to properly OC then i highly suggest not to play with it unless you wanna be without a PC

here's something to look at

Not all chips will overclock well. Each and every single chip is just a little bit different with what it will allow. In addition, your RAM is also important when it comes to stable overclocking.
