Checking cpu frequency how to? Tags: CPUs How To Intel i7 Last response: January 9, 2010 12:28 PM in CPUs Share Anonymous a b à CPUs January 9, 2010 10:57:01 AM I have downloaded cpu-z to check the actual cpu frequency on my i7-860. However, it is ramped down and currently running an 136,7*9 = 1230 Mhz. Is there any programs i can use to "provoke" my cpu to work at high loads and ramp up to maks speed?
