i7 7700k CPU Throttling

I have my CPU overclocked to 4.5 ghz, would that cause throttling with the current motherboard I have? Also my CPU does get up 4.5ghz when it busy but when it not under heavy load it stays at 800 mhz.

More about 7700k cpu throttling
  1. Monitor temps under load I suspect it's overheating and throttling. What cooler do you have?

  3. That is probably your issue. A $50 air cooler is a good bit better than that thing. Definitely run a cpu stress test and check temps to confirm however

  4. The CPU will throttle if it gets too hot ... testing w/ synthetics is not really useful as these loads will far exceed any application that you can throw at it. If you you can run RoG Real Bench, an application based benchmark, you can be confident that no application or game will result in throttling. USe HWiNFO to track temps and core voltages

    Whats the best solution to stop my cpu from throttling?

  6. Dunno you gave us idle temps which mean nothing. Run a stress test and see what the max temps are.


    Edit: whoops I misread that. Was it throttling during that time? Need to see temps after it throttles.

    Second question why do you think it's throttling?

    Those were not idle temps I was running Doom 2016 while HWMonitor was open.

  8. Is it choppy or why do you suspect it is throttling?

    For example when I play Doom 2016 the frame rate is at 180 fps then slows down to 90 fps and after that it goes back up again in infinite loop.
    To answer your question it might be the motherboard.

    At those temps, its not throttling. A better cooler would help....

    The Mugen Max is $36 on newegg and competes with $90 coolers like the Cryorig R1 Ultimate

    Then why is the frame rate is going 180 fps to 90 in infinite loop?

    Give me about 10-15 minutes I will have the results for the benchmark.

  14. Don't run just ANY of the Unigine benchmarks. Valley is horribly CPU intensive, and Heaven is getting nearly as bad. Superposition, or use 3D Mark Timespy / Firestrike graphics tests.

    This doesn't sound like a CPU issue...it might be, but I'd be looking to your GPU first.

  20. Well, you're hitting the power limit all the way across the bench. The GPU usage falls off significantly there toward the middle, which could be a sign of a CPU bottleneck. This was screenshot was run in Heaven? Heaven is relatively CPU dependent....that could be the cause of it.

    Do this. Play your game, monitor CPU usage in the performance tab in windows task manager, and monitor GPU usage with GPUz sensors tab. When your FPS drops, alt tab to your desktop and check the graphs. See what the CPU and GPU are doing at the time of the FPS drop (get a screenshot and post it). That'll might narrow down the problem, so we can suggest a solution.

    It could be as simple as the GPU throttling down for some reason....Doom 2016 is mostly GPU bound, so it's almost gotta be something there. CPU throttling still doesn't seem like the answer.

    Why would my CPU be bottlenecked when it is the latest CPU. Why would my GPU throttling? Btw I tested Doom 2016 and the CPU usage was 99% with v-sync off.

    On CPU intensive programs, usually ones that are single or very lightly threaded, they put an undue amount of pressure on the CPU, especially with a very powerful GPU. The GPU is trying to drive the game faster than the CPU can. Or, vice versa....the CPU could be driving the game, faster than the GPU can display it. It's just the nature of the beast, really.

    If your CPU usage was pegged out while playing DOOM 2016, what was the GPU usage like? Was it also at 100%, or was it dropping down some?

    Could try putting a little clock on your CPU, see if that helps. 4.2 on a 7700k is pretty pedestrian. Should be able to easily run it at 4.5 with a decent air cooler, or higher with better cooling. It may help.

    Goes with what I've heard about DOOM, that it's GPU bound. Did GPU usage ever drop off, did the clocks drop? What happened to the graphs in GPUz when the frame rates dipped?

    I see a pretty big drop off in GPU load and clock speed. That would certainly cause the kind of frame rate drop you're seeing. Do you have the latest drivers? Have you been to the game's forums to report an issue?

    No I haven't been on any game forums yet. I am about download the lastest NVIDIA driver, after that done do want me to run GPU-Z with Doom and see if that fixed it?

    The reason for the test is to see if you get the wild cycling which you were reporting earlier (90 - 180 in Doom). The RoG Real Bench test and the other tests will put a strain on your components fat above what any game will. Are you still seeing the wide swings ?

    if not, then its not your system, its the game.

    Now for the GPU-Z Results.
    Unigine Heaven Benchmark 4.0



    The reason for the test is to see if you get the wild cycling which you were reporting earlier (90 - 180 in Doom). The RoG Real Bench test and the other tests will put a strain on your components fat above what any game will. Are you still seeing the wide swings ?

    if not, then its not your system, its the game.


    I am still seeing excessive frame rate drops and my GPU usage is going up and down while playing.

  31. while playing what ? It is expected that the Unigine rates will vary but Furmark should be constant

    Do you have MSI Afterburner downloaded? Raise your power limit slider to it's max, and set a custom fan curve to run the GPU cooler. That should help avoid the power limit throttling. See if that helps first...that's the easiest fix for what is showing as a problem right now.

    How do I create a custom fan curve?
    Oh and btw I thought you might want to look at this. Its my CPU and GPU being monitored at the same time.

  35. I don't see anything there that would indicate any problems with the CPU. The GPU will certainly be making frequency / voltage adjustments at those temps, though. I can't imagine those small adjustments would account for the frame rate drops you're seeing, but they can't help any either.

    Your contradicting yourself.

    Talking about this?

    "I see a pretty big drop off in GPU load and clock speed. That would certainly cause the kind of frame rate drop you're seeing. Do you have the latest drivers? Have you been to the game's forums to report an issue?" ??

    I should have stated, "that can cause the kinds of frame rate drops you're seeing, but I wouldn't think to the extent that you're seeing them."

    Couple those GPU frequency / voltage adjustments done by boost 3.0, and the power limit perf cap you're hitting....who knows. I can't imagine they'd cause the frame rates to drop by half, but...../shrug

    As I said, I'd try setting a custom fan curve to keep the GPU cooler and raise the power limit to max, and see if it doesn't help. If it doesn't, I'd pull a DXDiag, and contact the game devs, see if they have any solutions. This problem is definitely not a problem with your CPU throttling.

    I'm sorry to say Vellnious but by putting the power target up to 120% did hardly nothing for me. It did make things slightly worse and unstable at least in DOOM it did. I also may have reason why my gpu is under performing, my UEFI is currently corrupted do a mistake with overclocking. My Father has to come over and reinstall and fix the bios.

    Not sure why raising the power target would make things less stable.....it's not actually doing anything but allowing the GPU to draw more power before it hits the power limit.

    Odd about the bios....let us know how it goes.

    I'm just wonder if my CPU can handle being at 4.5Ghz, if it is not throttling. Btw I spent $2080 on this PC so this is quite frustrating

    I've not seen a 7700k that couldn't..... As I said, though.....I don't think the problem is with the CPU here.
