Cpu speed not right? Tags: CPUs Dual Core Last response: May 13, 2012 3:36 AM in CPUs Share Normalcey May 12, 2012 4:04:07 AM I just upgraded from a very poor quality dual core (amd athlon 64 x2) To a Phenom II Black Edition 960t. The core speed however.. doesnt seem to be right. The cores dont seem to have the right speed, any suggestions? http://i.imgur.com/jaC0X.jpg More about : cpu speed | E-mail me updates | Report abuse Register or log in to remove amuffin CPUs Master May 12, 2012 4:08:12 AM That is amd cool and quiet! It down clocks your processor when you aren't doing anything cpu intensive. Don't worry, it saves energy and extends your processor life! | Report abuse Normalcey May 12, 2012 4:11:12 AM Ok, but games seem to run exactly the same as before : / Would only having 3 gigs of ram be an issue? For example BF3 still runs at 25 fps on low. people with worse cpus, same video card can do high, with more ram at around 45 fps.

It seems to be getting pretty warm, 44-50C on standby, and around 60 playing a bf3 for a few minutes. Is this high for this CPU? | Report abuse amuffin CPUs Master May 12, 2012 4:44:29 PM Not very high if you are using the stock cooler. | Report abuse Normalcey May 13, 2012 12:36:37 AM What's the general max temperature before it becomes dangerous?
