The 915P isn't the greatest thing for overclocking, as a matter of fact, I think it was one of the not "so" good chipset for OCing from Intel.

I had an ABIT AG8-3rd Eye and the most I could get out of it was 250fsb.......now the ASUS 915P Deluxe board was the only 915P board which had the highest OC possible but......

IMO, the most that board would be able to get out of it stable will be 250 to 260fsb max.

Here's my AG8-3rd Eye: http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc.php?id=88696

IMO, I'd say sell that GIGABYTE board and get an ASUS P5-Something and see that Cedar Mill go to at least 4.20ghz easy, with some proper cooling obviously.

he opened up CPU-Z and his multiplier keeps jumping from x12 to x16, im guessing this is just a messed up CPU-Z?


his frequency keeps jumping from 2400MHz to 3200MHz

The multi going from x12 to x16 and vise versa, well, that's EIST and C1E being enable in the BIOS. Perfectly normal.

I got that going on in my Pentium D 945:

Not really, even "IF" he were to overclock it. It becomes unstable at around 275fsb+ for 200fsb CPUs.

No need to disable it. It's just like Cool N Quiet, if it helps run the CPU a little cooler, why not?

My current C2D system has EIST and C1E enabled........the other day while playing a game I left TAT on running in the background and while I was playing, the system went from 2.1ghz to 3.1ghz in some cases, so it's not screwed up, it's just that "IF" the CPU is not required to run at full speed for something that won't be necessary? Then the system just lowers the speed and when needed? it just goes up.

My C2D speeds, idle: http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc?id=169494 and when at full load: http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc?id=169495
