    Default Skylake i7 6700K - Windows 10 & CPU Parking bug?

    Hello everyone,

    I don't know if my CPU cores are parked.
    I wanted to make sure that my Skylake i7 6700K is using all it's cores.
    I found this:
    "unpark cores in windows"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mv0tYJ74_No

    i knew about this before and used to unpark my cores in windows 7, but i thought on windows 10 they solved it and by defualt the CPU will use all the cores (correct me if I'm wrong please).

    When i enter to:
    task manager --->Performance tab ---> resources monitor ---> CPU tab, nothing for me is parked (there is no indication that says the cores are parked).
    but when i open the application which is in the video, it says the cores are parked + also the values are 100.
    I might think thats a windows bug?
    i took some screenshots:




    thing is, the registry value is 100, which is basically mean that some of the intel cores are parked (Please, correct me if im wrong),
    while in the resources monitor page it shows all the cores are unparked. (none of them marked as parked or mentioned as parked).

    there is a way to check that my processor using all it's cores?
    is this a bug ?

    Did you restart your pc after that?

    I doubt "unparking" your cpu cores will do much nowadays.

    Hey, thanks for the response.
    What I'm trying to say in this post is:
    My cores are unparked already according to windows resources monitor page (i didn't unparked them by anyway), but when i enter the "Manager Parked CPU's" application, it indicates some of the cores are parked.
    So my questions is, is that a bug?
    is there anyways to check if all my cores are unparked?
