So, I guess Hwinfo is just reporting all cores available though they are not in use and not generating heat. Is this a correct assessment?
I would attach an image if I could see how. All six cores are at full without any conceivable load. It's as if the motherboard is telling the cpu to process on al six and not throttling back and using only two if not needed.
Is this an issue with Hwiinfo reporting the i7 8700 cpu, a motherboard settings issue or a stuck full on CPU? Anyone have a clue? I got the CPU used and am on the 2nd New MB with same issue (MB settings all in default as much as I can tell). Thanks in advance.
