FX 6300 overlocked from 3.5 to 4.5Ghz but windows shows that the speed never goes above 4.41Ghz


The utilization is at 26% in the screenshot below but I've had it at 99% and still didn't peak above 4.41Ghz.


What do you guys think?

Hi Jago86 ^_^,

Personally, I don't trust the values of Task Manager when it comes to CPU. Earlier when I had Windows 8, my CPU maxed out at 3.0GHz (Due to Turbo Boost) and it was visible in the Task Manager, but when I installed Windows 8.1 , the Task Manager shows my default speed (2.4GHz) and does not show that my processor is being overclocked due to Turbo Boost.

But, when I run CPU-Z , I see that my CPU Frequency goes till 2.996GHz which is very close to 3.0GHz . I would suggest you to check CPU-Z for a more accurate reading.

Another question is how you OCed ? Did you leave anything on auto ? Voltages, power saving etc. ? All of these ca slow processor down. LLC can keep voltage down and so it would limit OC to some extent.
