Re: 5600x max clock on idle

Have a look in task manager to see what/if any processes have high cpu use.

Could be an App./software set to run on startup.

Could be an incorrect bios setting.

Re: 5600x max clock on idle

I am not familiar with that motherboard but my Asrock z370 has a sort of multi core enhancement setting in the bios and if that is enabled they will run at max clocks.

I don't know what Asus calls it but it could be something like that

Did you make changes to the default global settings?
