Strange mobo issue

Recommended Posts

My computer specs are in my signature, just FYI. Tonight I was going to do some testing with hyperthreading. I normally run with it off. When I entered the BIOS, it said that "hypethreading not supported." I know this isn't true because I have an i7 3770k, and I have enabled HT before. Nonetheless, I enabled it anyway. But when I opened both task manger and CPU-Z, only 4 threads were shown to be active. So, I went back into BIOS and decided to bump my CPU from 4.5 GHz to 4.6 GHz just as a test. CPU-z said my CPU was running at 4.5 even though I set it the multiplier at 4.6.

 

Something is up with my BIOS. Any ideas? Solutions?The BIOS version is the most current, FYI.

Interesting. What mobo do you have? I had an ASRock Z77 that needed a CMOS reset somewhat regularly or else presets wouldn't take...

I have the AsRock Z77 Extreme4. It's been a great mobo, actually. This is the first reset I have had to do. I am wondering if my GPU and RAM upgrades had anything to do with it... either way, everything works again. I reloaded my OC profile and all good.
