Recommended Posts

and that was with a game downloading the back ground on steam best settings not to over loading the cpu at 3.42 GHz. at peak and a content speed of about 3.23 GHz. no thermal throttling, no power throttling, but current limit throttling, maybe because my settings works great give it a shot

Great job there, Latinmike7!


W/out any games running, XTU only, my XPS 8700 with i7-4770, which is still a Top 10 Common CPU on Passmark, showed current limit throttling, I presume because Dell (in their poop wisdom), provided only one CPU power connector. When most MB's has two, and when tested on my ASRock Z97 Extreme6 (had to borrow until my i5-4690K came in), no more throttling of any type.


Had it not been a locked CPU, could had gotten a higher score, although took what I could get & run.


If you run XTU alone w/out other software running, your score should be higher next time.;-)
