    Default Asrock Extreme3 Gen3 + Ci5 2500K Overclock Question

    I have successfully overclocked this box to a simple 4Ghz but for whatever reason, CPUID reports the clock running at 1597 Mhz, not the 4Ghz I expected. The multi is set to 40 and the BIOS does read 4000Mhz with all the settings retained.

    Anyone have an idea why CPUID reports such a low clock speed on an overclock?

    its reading the power saving states,either go in the bios and disable c1e or look in windows power saving options and select "high performance" profile,then in cpu-z it will show full speed,what your seeing is normal it auto downclocks when cpu is idle,once light loading or fully stressed it auto clocks back to 4ghz

    You got me to thinking what I needed to do and it was the Intel SpeedStep I needed to turn off. Then it stuck to 4Ghz and reported correctly.

    thanks :)
