Hi ive just installed a AMD FX-4100 ive just used CPU-Z and it says Freq : 1406.29 MHz (200.9 * 7) is this correct?
Will i be running at the 3.6ghz stated for this CPU?
Thanks

its the cool and quite that is causing this, its a power saving option, run a stressful program like cine bench and then see cpuz, the frequency will whoop to 3.6 ghz.

dont worry, its perfectly normal.

Another question- in cpuid hardware monitor pro the fx 4100 cpu voltage core reads between 1.00v idle and 1.43v under load i get that the idle is correct but 1.43v is to high, right? is this an accurate reading? If not is there a way to get a more true reading?
also when monitoring CPU temps do i go off the TMPIN0, TIMPIN1 or the core temps? as there is quite a diffrence between these.
Thanks,
Lee....

Motherboard is Asus M5A78L-M/USB3

OK well i updated BIOS & still the same problems with voltages. I saw on the net how to change voltages so i set the cpu over voltage to 1.33v the multiplier to x18.5 (3700) with bus speed of 200.0Mhz. I also disabled turbo core & cool & quiet.
Is this ok? Or do I need to lower voltages or Multiplier?
Thanks for any response.

Keep the multiplier, some amd cpus don't have the same voltage as others and have learned that on my own :o  Start lowering the voltage a little at a time until you find out just how much you actually need for the system to be stable. That way the cpu runs cooler and it saves you a little on the power bill but not much. AMD tends to give their cpus high stock voltages compared to older models and intel.

OK thx i tied lowering the over voltage to1.287v only thing is in cpuz, core temp & pc probe 2 its showing as 1.32v.
Any ideas?

Software isn't always accurate. Try pcwizard or hwmonitor.
