Hey guys, I've tried to play with FSB + multi oc'ing and have noticed that it was tad snappier to what my just multiplier oc does (League of Legends loads faster now, and exits a match to the summary screen almost instantly) but there is a concern that I want to ask...
Under load my cpu (8350) remains to what I've specified for the oc to be 4.515Ghz @ 1.38v (thank chip gods it's stable with a manageable heat output even when it's summer here). And to my best tried to match my rams default 1600mhz rating as close as possible.
But when it's IDLE it plays from 1.47 - 4.5ghz just quick bursts to those and back again... Is this normal? Have some of the power saving modes enabled after testing the stability (don't want to eat alot of power every time haha although the chip is power hungry).
APM is turned off and HPC is turned on. As for voltages I have used the dynamic voltage offset so that CnQ would work as well.
I've included some of my settings here:CPU Frequencies page: (Click to show)

Also one last thing I've clearly set up to run 4.5 Ghz on bios but whenever I try to use or view the system information via F9 button in bios and logo screen it says am only at 4.3ghz? Is this normal?This: (Click to show)
Hoping for your enlightening inputs!
Thanks in advance!
