    ISSUE READING OUT CORRECT FREQUENCY FOR CORE 9, 6950X, USING INTEL EXTREME TUNING UTILITY

    Don_P

      MY SYSTEM:

      ASUS X99-E-10G WS

      INTEL i7-6950X

      16G of MEMORY (2X8)

      EVGA 1200W PLATINUM POWER SUPPLY

      NVMe SAMSUNG 960 EVO (500g)

      WINDOWS 10 PRO 64BIT

       

      I never had this problem before.  My original 6950X IMC failed but before it failed, I could see the correct cpu core frequencies for cores 0 through 9, using the INTEL EXTREME TUNING UTILITY.

       

      The replacement processor appears to be working correctly but core 9 does not read out the actual frequency.  If I set 3.5ghz for all the cores, then cores 0-8 read 3.5ghz in the Intel Extreme Tuning Utility.  BUT, core 9 does NOT read out 3.5ghz.  It jumps between 3.0 to 4.0 every 5-10 seconds, with no middle ground readout.  It either reads 3.0ghz or 4.0ghz, nothing in-between!

       

      The Asus program for windows which monitors all the appropriate sensors and frequencies says core 9 is at 3.5ghz.  I also did a CPU-Z dump and that says core 9 is at 3.5Ghz.

       

      What is up with CPU or Intel's Extreme Tuning Utility????......Don
