- When I OC my CPU using Gigabyte's easytune 6 to the mid level (yellow, 4.2 Ghz I think) and use the XMP profile 1 setting for the RAM at 2333 everything works fine and everything is stable except my network throughput. I tested it last night and with the overclocked settings I'm getting 1200 kb/sec. With no overclocking, I'm getting 45,000 kb/sec or better. I'm using Charter's ultimate cable internet so I should be getting about 50Gb/sec download.
Why would overclocking kill my network throughput?
- Are you able to reproduce this problem consistently?
Absolutely, have tried to overclock several times and lose network throughput each time.
- What steps did you take to reproduce this problem?
Set overclock settings, reboot, test internet speeds. Remove overclocking, test internet speeds.
- What action did you expect to occur when this bug appeared?
I expected to have the same internet speed regardless of CPU and RAM overclocking.
- Any additional information that will help us diagnose the issue:
