Prevent Overclocking and Underclocking?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Is there any possible way to prevent overclocking and underclocking on an i7?
I'm often gaming and it overclocks itself to a very high speed and then gets hot. After it gets hot, it just underclocks itself and says underclocked.

So are there any settings you can modify in the BIOS to prevent the cpu from overclocking and under clocking?

Disabling Speedstep causes it to stop overclocking, but the cpu still underclocks.

Thanks biggrin.gif

disable speed step and turbo boost, that should stop both over and underclocking.

but why would you want that? Underclocking saves electricity when your at idle, turbo boost helps when your doing intensive things

Welcome to OCN sounds like you need to remount your stock cooler or get a decent aftermarket cooler. Might want to take a look at your case cooling as well since it is running hot and underclocking.

Should fill in your rig specs in the CP or just list them in the post so we know more about what you working with.
