Asus P8P67 cpu ratio fluctuating help

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I've been out of the game for a while so I may have forgotten a few things but I'm trying to keep my CPU OC settings but been unable to as It keeps dropping down to 1.6MHz . Im not sure if there are more steps to be taken with my MB but I have already disabled EIST/C1E. While I do reach my OC settings everything is as I set it just keeps dropping... Any input?

THANKS!

What about speedstep Is that still enabled if it is you will drop down too 1.6 when not under a load cause that's one of intel's power saving features
so if you wanna have that clock all the time you will have to disable it

^Disabled it as well. Well Eist which is labeled as speedstep. Didn't find one just saying speedstep.

OK that helps . I just went into my BIOS and messed around and in order for me to have a 4.2 overclock at idle i had to change the following

1. C3/C6 state support ................[ disabled ]
Now personally i would not do that because it's going to put unneeded stress on your CPU because your going to be running that clock even at idle when you wont need it.....Hope that helps you

My guess is your using cpuz to measure clock speed. When the cpu is fairly idle cpuz can show an unrealistic multi, if you want to get a better idea use F9 or better still other software such as realtemp, throttlestop, coretemp etc...

When using C3 and/or C6 the cpu can spend a short time at the LFM, 16x in your case, even with EIST and C1E disabled but if you use the other software you'll see the average multi is bouncing around between max and LFM.

Personally I would not worry about it but if you want it permanently on max then disable C3 and C6 however your idle power / temps will be way high. Be aware that even then throttling can reduce your multi when exceeding TDP or TDC or Temp set limits. Also other components such as the VRM overheating can cause the multi to drop, in that case better to provide extra cooling to the VRM rather than override it by disabling bi-directional prochot.

Also try not to use auto so much, better IMO to put some real values in there. Auto can do different things depending how your oc'ing or even from one BIOS version over another sometimes leaving people thinking *** happened. With Asus 0 often means auto so if you want to set zero you will have to use the closest value to it. For instance if you want to set offset voltage to zero then use plus or minus 0.005V.

Hope that helps.

Edit: seems I took a little too long typing lol.

A lot of things are in Auto because that's how ASUS has it by default. I have been out of the game so I have not touched those settings. Any recommendations.

As for the CPU, it makes sense what your saying so I think its best how it is now then. Thanks for your help guys!thumb.gif

There is no one setting that is right for everybody, best if you figure out what your own preferences are. If you prefer to run with auto that is fine too, I only offer my personal opinion not a stipulation.
