CPU-Z test result question Tags: CPUs AMD Last response: January 18, 2010 3:50 PM in CPUs Share sheepherder99 January 18, 2010 2:04:31 PM I used CPU-Z to test my 3GHz Dell and a recently built AMD Athlon II X3 425 2.7 GHz CPU with MSI K9N6PGM2-V2 motherboard (and onboard NVIDIA GPU NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430). CPU-Z showed the Dell's core speed as 3 GHz but had the AMD as 800 MHz. AMD temperatures are about 20-30C (with HW monitor) and 40C in BIOS. Does this mean the AMD CPU is not capable of working at full potential. Thanks in advance More about : cpu test result question das_stig a c 92 à CPUs January 18, 2010 3:07:33 PM AMD probably using cool and quiet to step down the cpu speed, run something like prime95 at the same time as CPU-Z and you'll see it at full speed. sheepherder99 January 18, 2010 3:50:51 PM Thanks.
