Default Re: want to start overclocking

Okay thanks.

Right now I am running OCCT and the clock will drop to 2.2ghz then go back up to 3.3 while the cpu is at 100% load. I have both C1E and EIST disabled. Is there something else that needs to be disabled? Also when the clock drops, the temps also drop a few degrees too.

If your certain you disabled both, I have no idea?

What are you using to moniter speed?

Try CPUZ and coretemp at the same time.

I use OCCT(the stress program I am using), HWMonitor and CPUZ and it does the same thing. Now coretemp seems to stay at 3.3.

I don't understand this, if I stay at idle and don't stress it, it will stay at 3.3ghz.

I am using the bios to oc.

Off topic, but is there something wrong with this forum? When I go to quick links and click on edit sig or anything under quick links, it doesn't do anything. Is any else having this problem?
