High Sierra i7-8700k Frequency Spikes Up and Down (Help)

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I'm having issues with the frequency. It spikes up and down instead of a steady paste.. If anyone willing to help, it would mean the world to me, and I'll give a bounty back. 

 

Motherboard: Z370 AORUS GAMING 7 

 

Specs:

Intel Gadget:

Thank you for taking a look at my post, and hopefully someone is generous enough to help me out.  Thank you all!

Did you try PluginType?

Use latest Clover Bootloader & Configurator, enable PluginType in ACPI/SSDT/Generate

It's still giving me the same issue. =( 

 

Hi yubbs,

It does the same for me.

There's a few things. Check your activity monitor (find it in spotlight). Quite often the mdworker is going, which is indexing. You can exclude drives from indexing in the preferences.

The latest intel power gadget is worse than the old one.

I'm pretty sure that windows polls activity at a certain rate which makes it look smoother, OS x  or rather IPG polls at a rate that makes it look jerky.

The others are also right. The Mac is way more responsive. Don't worry about it. It won't kill your CPU. But you should usually leave IPG running to keep an eye on temps, especially if you're overclocking.

There are many useful tips and solutions, the first comment in the topic helped me.
