How long does it normally take for dropping to idle ?
Or does activating the XMP disables that?

*Fixed

I've fixed this with setting my Windows profile to Balanced and changing the profile to suit my needs.

Oh damn. I just recently brought my new SB system with this board last December and it's not a Gen3 board ... I'm so frustrated.

WHY be frustrated ? Is PCI-e 3.0 really worth much of anything YET ? ...

These would tend to suggest NO ... not for gaming, and much else not for awhile yet.

I mean great IF you have the PCI-e 3.0 board, but I dunno if it's worth the extra $ for a a little future proofing today ? Certainly not worth being upset about it.

Oh nice. That's really a good news. That ease up my frustration. Thanks.

By the way, I'm a new member here and I want to learn how to overclock my 2600K using this board.

And how can I tweak up the settings so it can read my RAM which is 1600 MHz but in system information, it says 1333 MHz.

Thanks really.

@ groomdedz , no prob I'm sure others were in your same boat too and could benefit from seeing that info, and sure it's nice to be as future proof as possible so for a few extra bucks I'd buy the Gen3 over the Gen2 maybe ... but most likely it won't matter for another 2-3 years and by that time, I bet half of you buy a new rig anyways tongue.gif if not sooner. As for your RAM question, conwa already has it posted ... just enable XMP in the BIOS.

"da shaq"

I find it truly amazing....they've managed to keep the doors open this long.
There's a strip mall near me ,so i've drop'd in and look'd around. There's not
a whole lot in there , other than 1/2 the stores dedicated to cellular phones.

From what i've come to learn....that cellular IS what's keeping um open. Don't
quite understand how or why folks would/could go there for phones.....but they do.
[apparently in much larger numbers than we'd ever ever believe]


I do tho.....have fond memories of the stand-alone Tandy stores. The Tandy
centers were 100% dedicated to the computer industry and sold nothing but
the TRS's and accessories. Thinking back.....it was the apple store of today,
just 30+ years ago.

I still have the beast , and don't ever plan getting rid of it. Still boots and any/all
apps still working , just as snappily *snickers* today , as they did back then.
The modem is still operable , and can git online if so inclined [i'm not]

So I broke me TRS-cherry 30+ years ago.........which probably explains , why i'm as
whacky as any other 60'ish nerd/geeker Just might explain why whacking some
aluminum heat-sink don't even phase me ='s what MacGyver would do
