Hello out there boyz!


Currently im running an old FX8300 Unlocked CPU OC to 4.2ghz with water-cooling of course . I've noticed maybe a software bug with AMD Radeon Software , CPUZ and the Windows Task Manager . is this a software bug or my CPU works on 4 cores while i have 8? I didn't find any setting into my bios for cpu cores or something..


AMD Radeon Software reads my CPU as 4 Cores .
CPUZ reads 8 cores 8 threads

Task Manager reads 4 cores and 8 logical
