Weird Core Effective Clock Readings after running HCI Memtest Pro 6.4 overnight (up to 2000% coverage)


Hi! After running succesfully 16 instances of HCI Memtest Pro 6.4 until he reached 2000% coverage in order to test my RAM overclock I checked the HWInfo Sensors and I noticed these strange values under Maximum and Average readings for Core Effective Clock: could it be a bug, or is there something I don't understand about how Effective Clock works? I hope anymway it isn't anything connected to an eventual instability of my RAM (the test itself passed with 0 errors).

This is certainly a bug. Can you please try the latest Beta version 6.15 if it shows a similar issue?
Just finished another HCI Memtest run, this time using HWInfo beta 6.15-3390: no weird readings reported.

Thanks for the feedback. In the next build I will add even more workarounds to avoid such erratic readouts.
