Core clock changing?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm not super experienced when it comes to OCing and what not...I just play video games. So heres the deal, I used Asus Auto tuning to boost my 2500k up since I have no idea how to manually do anything of the sort...and now my cpu goes from 4.5 ghz to 1.6 ghz randomly, Under load it maxes out but when idle it drops to 1.6. Is this normal? I just don't want to break a brand new system

That's your chip clocking down to save power. Check out this club to learn how to OC Sandy Bridge manually: http://www.overclock.net/intel-mothe...n3-series.html

Ah alright, cool thanks for the response. I just noticed I had turned the EPU on as well while I was messing with some cords...so that probably has a dramatic effect on power consumption too.

Do not enable EPU while overclocking. It may cause instability.
