First I heard of it. Does it work on the 1090T?

With your settings you have there, your computer will still pull around 400 Watts at maximum load

Been running 3.5Ghz / 4.2Ghz Turbocore on stock vcore for months all in the bios.

With a single 850rpm fan, this is what you get...

Ambient temp 20°C, 7°C offset (set higher) on coretemp, based on HWmonitor difference.



I've asked before in Sandy Bridge threads, forgetting the performance advantage, does anyone know what sort of fan speeds you have to run to get the sort of clocks that people tout for Sb on air, ie 4.5Ghz - 5Ghz?

And whats the max (roughly) speed you could hope for with a single 850rpm fan, on a decent air cooler?

hello

I have managed to acomplish this. What i do is leave CnQ enabled so the CPU idles low and cranks up when in use but i use a program called TurboV to apply an overclock of 4.0ghz by pressing a combination of keys just before playing a game. This essentually uncaps the 3.2ghz limit to 4.0ghz but only when the application needs it, therefore even once the overclock is applied it only uses it when needed. I get 4.0ghz performance in games and low power consumption and temperatures. With my H50 the highest ive seen it is 40degree after being on all day overclocked playing games.

Hope this makes sense.

Put a link up for that program.

You don't have to do it this way though if you don't want to.

I have mine set to 18x and a 210 bus speed = 3.79Ghz. I also have turbo enabled (custom setting in bios, set to 4Ghz). I'm on the stock cooler so I can't go past this and stay stable. NB is just under 2600Mhz.

When the CPU is not being stressed (browsing the Internet for example), the PC runs WELL below 3.79 Ghz and voltage drops way down as well (not at home right now so can't give you the exact values), but jumps up when in games or AOD (to verify the turbo is working - shows 3999Mhz).

Just throwing that out there in case you want to not have to worry about pressing hot keys anymore...

I will post some screens up tonight to show you my method. There are so many ways of doing it but i found this way works best for me at the moment. I am running a H50 block, 25degrees idle and 40 inder load overclocked. I could try and push to 4.1ghz but i dont think the performance increase is worth the extra heat and stress on the CPU.

I cant find a download link for Asus TurboV. It came on my motherboard disk. I may look into overclocking via the BIOS but i couldnt find a way whilst keeping CnQ enabled and working

Use Phenom MSR Tweaker instead, it works really well.

Turn off cool and quiet in bios, boot up, load MSR Tweaker, set custom power states in P0 and P1 that are exactly the same, these being your full overclock power states, ie at HT 250Mhz, then set the multi to X16, set CPU voltage, up to 1.55V and set your NB voltage, then set your down clock power states in P1, P2 and P3, I uses X10, X6 and X4 multi in these, also you can set the voltage for these lower levels also, people have played with these a lot and actually found lower voltages for the lower clocks that are still stable so it uses even less power.

Then after setting them up hit apply, then hit service, disable the turbo in service, then hit enable custom cool and quiet and hit apply, then if all is well, you can tick, make P state permanent and hit apply again, it writes the values to the registry and next time you boot up you will see the custom cool and quiet working.

Best thing is Windows 7 still reports the right CPU frequency in system because actual cool and quiet is turned off.

Hope this helps someone!
