i just stumbled upon some messages from eventviewer, stating that my CPU got an "internal parity error" which was "solved". the message kept appearing every 1 or 2 days, anyway.
the intel processor diagnostic tool failed with the frequency test (every other test was fine). as usual, the frequency tool doesn't write any log-file, so i tried the command line version of it (cpufrequ.exe).
i ran the tool several times and 4 out of 10 times, there was a much higher value with the frequency.
this one was by far the highest (i have an i5-4460, quad-core @ 3.2 ghz)
Expected CPU Frequency is --> 3.20
Detected CPU Frequency is --> 5.04538
Expected Base Clock --> 100 MHz
Detected Base Clock --> 100.908 MHz
is there a problem with my mainboard? - maybe with the hardware clock that regulates the cpu speed?
i never overclocked anything and all the components (except for drives) are 2 months old.
thanks to everybody who has read until this point
