Before I overclock my CPU... - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Thread Starter 
All of my spread Spectrum Settings(except one) are gray so I cant change them, however they are all disabled.

The one that Is not gray is PCIe Spread Spectrum(ssp) set to auto, So I'll disable that one.

Hmm, ok lol, now I'm not sure what to put C1E at O.o

Someone said that you can only raise Vcore if its disabled, is that true? If so them I will have to disable it.

If you don't intend on overclocking any higher than the default CPU vCore can cope with, you may aswell leave that and EIST enabled in order to save power. However, C1E and EIST can mess with any manual vCore settings you make, which is bad when you hit the 3.6Ghz range and require 1.55v to the CPU. If the vCore were dropped dynamically at this clock speed your CPU would become unstable, or possibly crash your system.

I've found that on Core 2's anything up to 3.0Ghz, usually only requires default volts, no matter which Core 2 you're useing.

If you intend to go over 3.0Ghz, disable it. If you only intend to perform minor overclocks you can leave it turned on to reduce power consumption when your CPU is idle. The same goes for EIST too.

Thanks, I'll disable it, as I hope to go past 3GHz. *knock on wood* Also, I don't see any setting for EIST.

EIST is also called Intel SpeedStep.
