XTU 7.3.00.33 reporting 17GHz CPU frequency

Hi, I am getting some odd reports from the XTU utility.

No problems besides the impossible readings.

Is it a bug on XTU? or have been blessed by the CPU gods? 

Please be the second.

Any insights?

Hi Maria,

Yes, I was able to upgrade the MB bios to 2801. After the upgrade, I was able to overclock to 5.3 Ghz. 0.2 more than before. I have not seen any spurious high readings; however, got a negative 3.7 once. Must have been a fluke. Still tweaking, I might be able to squeeze another 100 Mhz.

Thanks for the help,

Hi Maria,

Yes, I was able to repeat the minus 3.7 GHz reading. It occurs when the machine wakes from sleep. Is there something it can be done to fix it?

Hello gabe9,


Thank you for let us know.


We will proceed to check this internally, but first, can you please provide the below details?


  • Are you having performance issues or crashes on the system?
  • Provide a screenshot to verify how the device manager is detecting the frequency and also, the BIOS, please.
