When you OC an i5 2500k.. does it drop at idle? - Page 3

Core Speed ~1605.5 Mhz
Multi x 16.0
Bus Speed 100.3

I just want a "mild" 4.2 Ghz that can downclock itself when idle. I know this is lame but.. can't the mobo adjust stuff for me automatically if I hit it to a x42 Multiplier? Then adjust from there?

Thanks for the quick response tho.
okay cool, could you please update your pc specs so I know what your working with.

EDIT: Once I know what your running I could help you out with a few settings.

If you're shooting for 4.2 I don't think it may be necessary to change anything other than the multiplier if you're lucky. Just change you're multiplier to 42 and boot it up, run a stability test with a program like prime95 and cross you're fingers. If it's stable (and it very well may be) then you're good to go.

xD Can I just play with games instead and see if it crashes?

Hmm..

I kinda checked the "Stable Club" and saw in the charts one owner.. 4.3 Ghz @1.288V..

I tried increasing MY multi to x43 (and nothing else).. but the voltages being reported by CPUZ when gaming is usually at 1.344 V..

Can I leave it with that? I was really happy that it was downclocking on its own when not gaming or just with mild loads like browsing. The voltages also drops on its own!

I wish there was a way to lower my voltages manually during those spikes to 4.3 Ghz.. but still maintain the feature of the CPU automatically downclocking and downvolting at the same time

Im so sorry if I am making it very unclear on what I want to accomplish xD
