Solved WEI will not show OC'ed GHz Tags: CPUs ASrock Overclocking Last response: November 8, 2012 4:57 PM in Overclocking Share austing a b à CPUs August 5, 2012 1:33:50 AM I was messing around with my 3 Computers overclocking, and something odd happened. Relevent Info: CPU: Core 2 Duo e7300 MoBo: AsRock G31m-s R2.0 I was using the asrock OC Tuner and just accelerated the Ghz from 2.66 to 3.0 CPU-Z says its 3 ghz and all is well. I tested it with WEI and it will not show a new GHZ frequency. I refreshed the test and it still shows the stock GHz. Does anyone know anything about why this happens?

For example, my 2500K is OC'd to 4.5Ghz (as you can see in my Validation below), but System Info still says that it's 3.3Ghz. OC'ing DID slightly raise my Processor score in WEI though (I forget how much now, since it's been a while since I tested it at stock). In any case, if CPU-Z says that the CPU is OC'd, it's OC'd. Don't worry about what Windows says because it's not at all important. amuffin a c 184 à CPUs a c 149 K Overclocking August 5, 2012 3:52:07 AM This only happens with Intel processors, not AMD ones. To check, use CPU-Z as said above.

My screen shot: As you can see, there's nothing wrong at all with how yours is. That's just the way it is. Nothing you can do about it and it's nothing you should worry about anyway. austing a b à CPUs August 5, 2012 6:24:39 AM Ahh okie dokey, I saw someone was able to have it change, and mine wasnt so I freaked out. Thanks for the help. austing a b à CPUs August 5, 2012 6:25:38 AM Best answer selected by austinG. DJDeCiBeL a c 283 à CPUs a c 110 K Overclocking August 5, 2012 6:26:55 AM It was probably someone with an AMD CPU because it DOES seem to change for AMD CPU's, but not for Intel... And you're welcome. Cantisque November 8, 2012 4:57:27 PM My i7 was showing the OC value in WEI until I performed a memory upgrade and it went back to the stock speed, even though CPU-Z shows it correctly.
