Windows 7: Intel CPU - Diagnose

17 Apr 2014   #20

Windows 8 64bit

In the newly released version of IPDT there is a new method used for calculating the CPU Frequency. Previously we measured CPU frequency overs a 10 second period and reported. The new method reads CPU Frequency from the CPU registers and using baseclock ratio calculates the actual CPU running frequency. Obviously this can be affected by Turbo Boost, if it is enabled and running on your system.
You may download and use Intel Turbo Boost Technology Monitor to show the CPU Frequency dynamically on your system.

Thanks Gary,
I downloaded the monitor but I've got a bit of homework to do on Turbo Boost. My BIOS is generally set to "Normal mode" and I occasionally set it to the ASUS "Turbo mode" if running some number crunching. I'm guessing the Turbo Boost is different again.

Keep in mind that the Turbo Monitor is for processors released prior to June, 2013 and does not include 4th Gen processors. I'm not sure of the differences but the release notes specifically mention the exclusion. If you're getting strange numbers, that could be the reason. Slick piece of software though. :)

I saw that and have run it with my i7 2600k. I get a bar chart graph that shows varying clock speeds but maybe I've missed something more significant.
In terms of a diagnostic tool the older IPDT seems more relevant to my 2nd gen CPU than the new one. The i7 2600k has been such a good strong performer and I plan to keep it awhile until it or the motherboard dies.

I have a straight-up 2600 and feel the same way. Coming off a Pentium 2x2 with spinners to a i7 with an SSD was a huge jump. I haven't seen enough of a move in performance to make another jump. I gave a lot of thought to it when the quad channel memory came out but that seems to have died. What's up with that? Or is it just Intel boards? I may look again when new memory comes out but I'll need to see 4.5+ in native processor speed for a real motivator. The 100Mhz jumps just don't do it for me.

Boards and CPUs that support Quad-Channel (LGA2011) are fairly expensive. I suppose the next "big" jump will be with the introduction of DDR4 RAM. As I understand it will be available in 16GB sticks.

Windows 10 64 bit

I have a suspect i7 3770. The Intel tests all pass. The CPU tests on the "UBCD" (Ultimate Boot CD) all pass.

I'm getting BCC 124 BSOD and WHEA errors (I have a thread in the BSOD section).

I know its the CPU as all the other hardware, including memory and motherboard have been changed.

Anyone know any other CPU diagnostics?

Nice one Colin didn't know this one existed I only stumbled over the test in a Google for CPU tests now it is so much clearer what to do.

The Java stuff well I have to have it for my personal work info (payslips leave entitlements etc) and I have never had any problems - so far.

How to burn it to DVD as bootable dvd? I have a desktop computer that crashes with error WHEA... just before it is actually up and running. Reinstall win7 doesn't fix it.
