Just a question or two about my ga-z68x-ud4-b3

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
i got my mobo, processor and ram in yesterday and installed it all and i am really really really really glad i made the switch from AMD to Intel. and i want to thank all of you that helped me with the decisions of what to buy.

Now the questions. I installed windows 7 and got everything running (drivers updates etc) and decided to do some overclocking. I got it it 4.5 very quick and verystable. But everything BUT cpuz is showing me still running at 3.3 . windows is still showing it at 3.3 and 3dmark06 showed it running at 4.3? do i need to flash the bios to f8?
also my fans on my H60 are wide open lol, i was able to lower them with a 3rd party utlitly so i could check temps and they are awesome for a 4.5ghz oc. even at 30% speed. but by defualt they are running at 100%. they have been running this way since the first time i powered the motherboard on.
any help with these two issues would be great.

Go into the BIOS under PC health you can control the fan speed on the CPU's fan.

Disable EIST, C1E, and C3/C6 states, they are all under MIT advanced frequency control, and then in the menu in that something like Advanced CPu options. Also enable "Real time Ratio Change in OS" its in the same menu, that will kill turbo mode.

For those of you still using this board more than a year later it's not usually necessary to disable the power savings features and still get stable 4.6GHz or higher clocks on a 2500/2600/2700k processor.Your ears will thank you when you realize your fans are no longer spinning at 100%. I run mostly the optimized defaults just increasing the CPU multiplier to x46 then set cores to 46 under turbomode increase Vcore to approx 1.35v (or on the newer UC1 UEFI BIOS you can use Dynamic Vcore and save some power) and make sure your memory multiplier is not set too high and voila, bliss. You MAY also need to turn on the CPU PLL voltage option. This should work for most users of this MB.
