More about 6300 showing core
  1. go to task manager and see how many threads are available, should be 6. i would say its windows system information not showng things properly. Otherwise, go into bios and makes sure all cores are enabled, even try hard reset the motherboard bios.

    I would go into the BIOS and see If all the cores are enabled. If not, Enable them.

    Cheers :)
