    Hi guys.

    I over clocked my i7 6700 to 4300
    In bios its ok
    Im cpu z its ok
    In task manger its ok

    But windows not detecting it in system info page ?
    Is it normal or a bug from windows ?

    There are certain softwares that don´t detect overclock speeds. CCleaner is an example and i think Windows also doesn´t recognize overclocked speeds.
    Someone correct me if i´m wrong, please.

    Windows will not show overclocked speeds at system info. That's totally normal, don't worry.

    Windows just reads the device ID for system info and shows stock. Task Manager will show the true clock speed. Nothing wrong.

    The "System" dialog does not read clock speeds. It reads the CPU brand and model. The " @ X.Y GHz" is treated as part of the model name.

    Now I noticed even the bios shows it in one area as default.
    And in another as clocked is it normal ?


    You can see in the screenshot that on the right it shows just the name with default clock, while abit to the left it shows the ram and clocked cpu speed.

    Windows tells you what you bought.

    Windows started reporting correct cpu overclock for me after a mobo bios update, when I was on Win7 and still does on Win10.

    Trust me I was shocked when it happened lol! This was my first Gigabyte board, had Biostar and Msi, years back and they never reported overclocks either so it's not an issue.Long as oc utilities report the correct speed.
