New Pentium D 940 owner confused - Page 2

thanks for pointing that out JPM,

but anyways brock, EIST is lowering your clock speed, and it isn't a problem
Its your choice to disable it or not, and if you could tell us IF enabling it disables vCore adjustment

Thread Starter 
Ive watched the core speed in CPU-Z and your correct it kicks from 2.4 to 3.2GHz when i run a demanding application like a game. I cant do hardly anything at the moment in the way of bios settings because if you look at my spec ive got the standard mobo compaq provide with the presario. Im getting an ASUS p5b deluxe next week so i will keep you up to date as to wether Eist being enabled disables the vCore adjustment.
What do you think is best? keeping the EIST on or off? I would think that its a great way to look after your CPU especially when youve got a good overclock. Did you say you had a P D @ 4.5 GHz that dropped to 3.1 GHZ when idle with EIST enabled? If youve got a good oc like that your bound to be generating bags of heat so the drop sounds like a great way of keeping the temp down if your not running anything to demanding.
Could you give me a bit more info on your Pentium D @ 4.5GHz, im interested to learn about intel overclocks more as this is my first intel project (A practice run before i upgrade to the core 2 extreme and give the Pentium D to my daughter!).
Thanx!

keep EIST on,
for overclocking the 940, you will need a better CPU HSF, as well as better memory,

the mobo your getting is great for overclocking too
