So today i realized with both cpuz and amd overclock. That my cpu runs at weird frequency's.
I have a Amd Phenom ii x6 1100t black edition cpu.
So i just realized that my cpu will jump from 811 Mhz, to 1742mhz off and on. I have done tests like stability tests where it will run at it's normal clock speed. Which is 3.3 Ghz. Is this normal? I did accidentally bend a few cpu pins and had to move them back. I HOPE TO GOD IT'S NOT BROKEN!! I'm 17 and don't make much money.
Edit: The stability test do put the cpu under stress.
modern processors have power saving features like CoolnQuiet or Speedstep
to keep CPU frequency low and then raise it up when put under load
since it was at 3.3 when running the stability test
it is fine
BTW back in the Pentium 4 days I bent more than a few pins
and bent them back
and they ran fine
as long as they dont break off you are usually ok
just dont make a habit out of it
sounds like its just clocking down during idle, so when you put it under load its coming up to its full speed. It does all that to save power. You can probably disable that feature in the BIOS if you want.
