Hi!

I have an Intel Core i7 8700 processor and MSI Z370 motherboard KRAIT GAMING.

The processor does not change its frequency dynamically. Constantly works at a frequency of 4.3. In this case, I do not run any programs. What could be the problem?

Hello Evgen8ator,

 

 

Thank you for joining this Intel Community.

 

 

BIOS and power management parameters can cause this behavior. Please try these troubleshooting steps:

 

 

1. Try loading default BIOS values to make sure that voltages parameters are correct and that overclocking is disabled.

 

 

2. Check the power options in Windows* (Attachment). For example, you can change the Power Plan and the Minimum processor state.
