    i7 3770K @5.67 GHz. Daily.


    Firstly, I'm sorry for the title sounding like a hot shot scam.

    So I overclocked my system to 4.5 GHz, disabling only Turbo Boost. I also changed a couple of voltages.

    Before, I disabled not only Turbo Boost but also power saving features like C3/C6, EIST. At that time, Task manager always showed 4.48 GHz, looks pretty reasonable. But now I enabled all power savings (disabling only Turbo Boost) and then look what I got:



    Something is not quite right here, right? Perhaps I need to install processor driver? (Is that even exist?)

    On the other hand, I found that enabling all power savings actually increases my physics score on 3DMark11 by up to 0.4 FPS but unfortunately it decreases AS-SSD Score a bit. But I don't mind that, because I used this PC for gaming and torrenting so lower AS-SSD Score is OK.

    Please tell me your opinions.

    Thank you.

    Hello topgundcp, thanks for replying.

    I think I didn't enable Hyper-V. Take a look here:



    What do you think?

    I think they talked about Hyper-V Virtualization in BIOS.

    I can't find any tutorial on google to disable Hyper-V in bios but I found out that if you enable Virtualization, then Hyper-V can't run. So I go to my bios and enable Virtualization. Still, wrong clock speed by task manager.
