CPU Multiplier & Voltage Flucuating!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Wow I opened up CPU-Z to check my memory clocks, and I see my voltage jumping from 1.360 to 1.392 to 1.408V! I am SURE this is not good but I have no idea what could be causing it! Im guessing its as a result of the voltage change but my multiplier also ends up flucuating between 14x and 16x, changing my core clock from 2800 to 3200!
What could be causing the voltage to change and the muliplier to change?? My CPU should be at its stock speed of 3.2GHz and I haven't done any overclocking...

Also I have a question about memory speeds: I have three sticks of 667MHz memory, and according to CPU-Z my divider is 10:9, so 200 MHz FSB : 180MHz Ram Frequency! I cannot find the divider in my bios, but shouldn't I be able to run my ram at its rated frequency of 333MHz?

Thanks,

Nick

those are the power/heat saving options... go in the bios and disable em after that you ll always be at 3.2 ... Enhanced Halt State (C1E) ,Speedstep & TM function are the settings ( under cpu config )

to change the ram divider go on the ram freq. option and select the freq. above

hope that helps .

Thanks for the tips! I wrote down those and rebooted in my bios but I only found the Speedstep one, and I only wrote down "Enhanced Halt State" so I missed C1E but I'll go disable that now. Couldn't find TM though...
And which frequency should I change my ram to right now? its at 720MHz in the bios but I'm not sure if thats the acting frenquency or not :S
I set it to 800 MHz, got one long beep and no boot, set it to 750 and couldn't get into windows, but 720 works fine.

np yea TM might not be supported by the p4 so no worries ...

you can benchmark with sandra and/or everest and depending on the results select a divider .... personaly i run my ram faster than my CPU (divider 4:5) and get the best performence this way..but theres controversy on this subject amoung OCers some say 1:1 is best while others like me get the best with faster ram...so i recommend some testing.

at 720 you running your ram faster than your cpu ... thats 9:10 (i got confused cause in the first post you had written 10:9) ..if you want 1:1 you need to do the opposite of what i said earlier

to change the ram divider go on the ram freq. option and select the freq. "" below "".
