OverClock Question

Why does my frequency keep dropping randomly from 3762.47MHZ to 1200mhz in coretemp? It keeps going up and down it my maximum temp in coretemp is 39c with prime95 so temperature is not an issue somebody please help?

  1. Hi.

    That's a feature in your CPU that drops the frequency of the CPU for save power and reduce temps when your rig is on idle. You can disable it in the BIOS.

    AMD = Cool'n'Quite
    Intel = SpeedStep

    That's the name of the features in both, Intel and AMD
  2. Cool and quiet and c1e is both disabled it still happens it seems like it only drops when reaching a certain temperature though 38-39c but that's not high at all..
  3. So, you have an AMD CPU?
  4. I think i found the issue, It's still throttling back to 1200mhz but less often. What i did was lower voltage from 1.40 to 1.35 and only overclocked my cpu to 3.6 instead of 3.7, it seems like when it reaches a certain temperature 37c-39c. I wish it woulden't throttle at all but it's doing it alot less now with prime95. I Could always lower the voltage more but i dont know how much my voltage needs for 3.6 overclock the default voltage for 2.8 stock is 1.248
  5. Try with lower voltage, if doesn't work rise it again.
