    just built my new rig and everything is working great. this one thing is bothering me.


    task manager says something completely diff than cpuz for the speed of the proc. is this a bug?

    win 8.1

    sry the pic sucks but task manager says I'm at 2.84 and cpuid says i'm at 3.6.

    the 3.6 is what i have it set to in the bios. why would task manager say different? never had this happen before.

    Totally normal. Win 8's task manger uses a different method to poll the CPU frequency, and it's not always accurate. Either that, or it's more accurate than anything else. Not sure which is the case. Either way, nothing is wrong.
