Hello, I have just purchased and built my very first gaming rig, but I have recently been having a problem. When I play games or I decide to benchmark my PC my PC down throttles itself down from 4.3Ghz to 1.6 ghz therefore I get much lower and very inconsistent FPS, this makes benchmarking and gaming a nightmare.
My PC rigs specs are as follows:
GPU: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 670 WindForce x3
MotherBoard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4
Case: Zalman Z11 Plus
CPU: Intel i5 3570k @ 4.3ghz
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo
Optical Drive: Sony AD-7280S
RAM: Corsair 8gb DDR3 @ 1600mhz
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB
SSD: Samsung 830 series 128gb
PSU: Corsair CMPSU-750TXV2UK Enthusiast (750 W)
OS: Windows 7 64bit
Basically my my problem is that when I set multipliers to 43 with all cores enabled in the bios, I cannot turn off intel turbo boost (which after some research has suggested to me that is causing the down throttling to occur). The option simply just skips past, meaning I cannot disable to option. I have attempted to disable to option beforehand but it defaults back as soon as I set the cpu ratio from auto to all cores.
I have ran prime 95 tests for 1 hour and the max temperature I was getting was 68 degrees Celsius.
I would gladly appreciate help in turning off turbo boost while allowing me to change multipliers or to fix the down throttling.
I ran heaven benchmark at max settings and only recorded a 40 fps on 1080p, I was expecting much more with my GPU (I was expecting high 70's) after some research I determined that the CPU was down throttling itself to 1600 Mhz during testing which bottlenecked the GPU.
hello guys! Do u think this program "ThrottleStop"will help me with my cpu and gpu...in one word,will help my laptop to not have anymore that fps drops?? I have an Acer Aspire E1-531G,Intel dual-core B960 at 2,2 Ghz,8 Gb of ram and NVidia GeForce 710M with 2 gb VRAM,Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bits! So what do u think,it will help me,or not!I can play with this laptop a few good games,but in some of them i have this damn fps drops,specially in Assassin's Creed 4 Black Flag!!???
