When I have this heat under control I'll need to confirm some OCing intel stuff.
When probe was installed it showed 16 something cpu speed.
Flip to 41 but stayed mostly at 16+.
Tried disabling some settings in bios to let it run but I am not finding the right one.
Starting to feel like a noob.
Wait, is that the multiplier? (the base clock is 100MHz on the SB and I think IB chips) It's perfectly normal for it to lower itself when the machine's idle - mine runs at 1.2GHz while idle (133x9) and 2.66GHz (133x20) under load, for instance. (the lynnfields used a base clock of 133MHz, not 100)
My multiplier is 16
BS is 100
According to CPUZ.
I have been searching bios to disable anything that says when enabled it saves power by reducing speed/performance.
With that disabled the above numbers remain the same.
Would like to run this at stock speed (3.4) without throttling back then apply OCs and see what the temps do.
And see what score 3D shows.
What am I missing to lock my core speed?
Still getting used to this new bios.
I must say though that this pc is so responsive.
Haven't gamed beyond the simple game Halo online to really push it that way but no BSODs or any other weird errors.
Completely stable and glitch free at the moment.
From a cold boot I'm online in 50 seconds.
PC shuts down within 5 seconds all the time.
