Is my CPU dying?


#1

Ok so I noticed my CPU running quieter then usually? Also I sometimes noticed one core maxing out before all the other cores.
So I runned AMD System monitor while playing Star Citizen. My results look very weird with core one bearly ever going above 1700 speed.

This is all the data I got, (dont need to point out my GPU is extremly bottle necked)
Is AMD system monitor broken or my CPU?


#2

well I guess I feagured out AMD readings are bad, the speed is in MHz, which would mean 3 cores are running at 1000s of GHz,
I used CPU-z which seams to be giving me 3918MHz which sounds right.
I am not sure where AMD System Monitor gets it’s reading of core speeds.
