Turbo boost enabled or manual overclock? (I7 2600k)

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi, my cpu bottleneck sometimes my gpu (evga gtx 580 SC) so i want to overclock the cpu to 4.0 GHZ. I saw a review that you can just change the ratio in bios to 40/42 so when the cpu is under load it automaticly boost to 4.0/4.2GHZ with turbo boost enabled and when at idle it drop back to 3.6 so you saving more power/electricity and tempratures...

Or is it better to just disable Turbo Boost and change the other stuff manually?

If You get Idle BSOD problems, please disable C3/C6 OS detection in bios. As it will give you a tad higher Idle Vcore. Helped me.

I would disable all Cstates (except maybe C1) as they degrade HD performance.

C3/C6 can sometimes cause issues, but generally they do not. If you find that you're BSODing on idle then I would suggest doing as Turrican said and disable them but it seems to vary differently between individual users. As I said too the max temperature for Sandybridge is 98C, but I'd recommend staying under 85C for common usage.
