@Neo

Is your cpu overclocked and does win10 shows the correct cpu base clock and turbo clock?
Also do you know if win10 has new tools for memtest or cpu stress test?

I do not overclock my machine. I do not know of if any new tools other than the memory diagnostic tools has been released (or if that program has ever been updated).

Resource monitor for some reason seems to be missing on my machine.

that's odd for something elementary like that to be missing..
Does it show your cpu's true base clock and turbo clock in computer properties?
I tried to install win10 on vbox but it failed I guess it doesnt support it yet.

It's the same as in Windows 8.1 / 7 / Vista. I suppose you could file some sort of feature request for it but to me it's trivial.

I found that Win7 doesnt show your true clock speed when you overclock the chip and even if you just activate xmp profile which usually auto overclocks cpu by negligible amount it reports wrong cpu clock.
I tried even everything on stock and insted of 3.3ghz base and 3.6ghz turbo it shows both speeds on base clock 3.3ghz which is rather weird.
I researched it a bit and also found that Win xp reports the exact amount of clock both base and turbo even when you overclock.
For some strange reason Vista and Win7 arent accurate when it comes to cpu's clocks(in some cases).
That's why I'm so curious if they addressed these issues in Win10...

apparently win9 was suppose to be an upgraded version of win8, but I have tried it, and hated it. And so have so many others hated it, that Microsoft decided to skip win8 upgraded(win9) and went on to make win10. I'm hoping 10 is good, but im not gonna hold my breathe...

XMP profiles have nothing to do with the CPU, at leats not in the way you just described.

In german windows 9 would be windows neun.
Translated that would be "windows no" practically.

In theory it's not but when I choose one of my xmp profiles it changes cpu values including multiplier and locks my cpu on 3.626ghz when it's stock turbo boost is 3.6ghz which is hard to understand..
Also my cpu is 10c more hotter when idle after I apply the xmp profile.
I'm talking about ddr4 and haswell-e cpu on a x99 platform not a conventional system I dont think you know much about it because nobody does still and it was really hard to reproduce this issue over the web (being brand new platform and all)but I found more people that are having the same results and finiding it strange as well.
anyway I sent mail to Asus hoping to clarify why Corsair xmp profiles touches cpu values.
