    CPU is underperforming and BIOS is not saving setings in windows. CPU: i9 10850k

    I have also discovered that my CPU is under performing.

    When running 3dmark my result OC to 5GHZ with XTU is about 2000 lower than similar system.

    Support from 3dmark looked at my results, both at default and OC.

    My CPU is definitely under performing, not only are my settings not saved in win from BIOS, CPU is not as fast as it should be.

    Something is not right. I really have no clue.

    Bios: 1003
    CPU: i9 10850k
    MB: Asus ROG Strix z490f
    Cooling: Corsair H115i Platinum
    PSU: Corsair RM850x
    RAM: Corsair Vengeance 3200mhz 64GB
    GPU: MSI 1080Ti

    It's a new build. except from GPU.

    RAM: Corsair Vengence 3200mhz

    When trying to overclock my settings is not applied or saved in windows.

    I use Intel XTU for monitoring and it's all at default when i get logged in. and the BIOS settings are not applied.


    I did try to OC with XTU and it was working well. 5ghz on all cores stable and below 90c when running Prime95.

    When running tests in 3dmark, my CPU is clearly under performing about 2000 points, for some reason.

    My CPU is not throttling, temp is never above 70c during 3dmark and not above 87 when stress testing with XTU.

    I have updated to the latest bios. v.1003.

    All is working well otherwise.



    Anyone have a clue about what the issue could be?

    When i monitor my CPU it never uses turbo mode from what i can see. It is activated in BIOS. is that normal? Have not been like that on other intel CPU'S i had.

    Still cant figure out why my BIOS changes is not applied when booting to windows, if i get back to BIOS they are saved in BIOS, but not in windows. They are all at default settings.

    I use XTU to monitor my settings. and HW info.
