Maybe you have won the super-hyper-mega silicon lottery.

ID: hko570l

what is that? i don't really understand,

ID: hko8c5n

Not all processor silicon is equal. Some processors just barely pass certification, while others exceed it exponentially. It's basically luck-of-the-draw as to which one you get.

Think of it like a cookie.

You make cookie dough, and you put little balls of cookie dough on your baking sheet. Even though the recipe is the same, every single cookie that comes out of the oven will be different. And a batch you made today might be similar but also taste slightly different from the one you made a year ago. But it’s still the same recipe so you call it your cookie name.

But some cookies will be smoother, some will have more cracks. Some might be bigger or smaller than others. You keep the ugly ones to eat yourself and only bring the pretty ones to the christmas party.

If you didn't overclock it, it means that windows is broken, so nothing unusual.

ID: hkn3fjx

At this point I feel like incorrect CPU clocks in Task Manager should just be considered working as intended it's been broken for so long.

so nothing unusual

Time to switch to Linux

Did you turn fmax on in bios?

ID: hkmvm6v

good question

ID: hkpj0uh

Quick unrelated question, do you know off hand the highest temperature your 5800X has reached with the U12A while playing games?

Hypervisor support breaks the clock speed monitor in Task Manager. It's done so for years. There's even a support article on it.

Go home Task Manager, you're drunk!

Use Hwinfo64 or ryzen master. check task manager to see if something is running in the background. Like parasitic rgb software.

ID: hkmw3t7

so cowardly that someone would downvote you here, with no comment to go with it.

On a separate note, I only use HWinfo64. I deleted Ryzen Master. It caused me huge problems when I changed RAM timings in that program, but other people may have a better time,

And with HWinfo64, I had to Disable Monitoring for all things related to RAM, so roughly 20 things, in the sensors area.

Once I did that, I had far far fewer issues in ICue with the RAM. Almost 100% fixed now that the those particular sensors have had their Monitoring disabled in HWInfo64.

and I absolutely love HWinfo 64

I have it customized heavily now.

ID: hkn6mkq

Hi! I love the idea of being able to make my monitoring software look great.

Firstly, is this the correct software?

And secondly, do I need any other software to customize it?

Thanks very much for your time!

ID: hkmwsgy

To add to this, many monitoring softwares break when using multiple qt the same time, so only have one open taskmanager or other monitoring software.

Lucky, you got the 5900x crack edition

it probably caught the frequency rising edge b4 it clocked itself down

ID: hko3xnx

It wouldn’t hit that speed.

it's not a tool you should depend on for information such as this.

It is only trustworthy to get a (very) rough idea of what may be running.

19 : Anonymous2021/11/14 22:18 ID: hkn8awz

And that's why you should never trust Task manager! For actual correct readings of all kinds of stuff I recommend Hardwareinfo64.

20 : Anonymous2021/11/14 22:23 ID: hkn90ed

Yeah this happens to my 4690k because I have it overclocked to 4.2ghz with speedstep enabled, for some reason that combination confuses the task manager.

If I disable one or the other it works just fine.

There is a bug in windows to show the true CPU speed

Aside from overall load, task manager doesn’t know what the hell a zen3 chip is doing.

27 : Anonymous2021/11/15 02:19 ID: hko4nt4

If you could get a stable 5.96GHZ pretty sure you would be able to make some benchmark records lol.
