Tags: CPUs Core Processors Last response: April 3, 2012 3:04 AM in CPUs Share Moustache April 3, 2012 2:19:23 AM Hi, I have just recently built my first gaming pc and I'm a complete noob at this and I really need some help S: I just downloaded CPU-Z, something my friend suggested for me to use to check my processor and my core speed for my i3-2100 should be 3.10GHZ. But CPU-Z shows: Core speed: 1596.4 MHz Multiplier: x 16.0 Bus Speed: 99.78 MHz Is there something wrong with my processor? (and I never touched my bios). Please help (: More about : cpu showing wrong core speed intel core 2100 Best solution jaguarskx a c 448 à CPUs April 3, 2012 2:44:32 AM Share Intel's SpeedStep automatically downclocks the CPU when there is no load to save power and reduce heat. You can download a program called Prime95 to stress the CPU. That should increase the clockspeed to 3.1GHz. http://files.extremeoverclocking.com/file.php?f=103 amuffin a c 184 à CPUs April 3, 2012 3:00:15 AM Intel Turbo Boost! Can't find your answer ? Ask !
