Help My Friend Out Plz.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My Buddy -RagingGumby- just got this comp, I helped him build it yesterday and we tried to overclock it but it was acting funny. He got the new EVGA 790i Ultra mobo w/Q9300 Yorkfield@2.5ghz. I have over clocked mine with great success, However his fsb won't go over 1600. Stock at 1333. I know it should go higher, I only got to plat with it for a little bit and was stepping his fsb to find an optimal overclock and it would not go past 2.6ghz. ARE U KIDDING? 2.5 to 2.6 great! B.S.! so I the checked the max of his fsb=1600mhz. Also only equaling 3.0ghz. whats up with that? Like I siad played with it for a short amount of time, He has the latest bios, Drivers etc.. Please Help him out. His original post, w/specs:

Trouble overclocking Q9300 on 790i ultra.

Thanx

Go into the bios and ensure C1 and Intel Speedstep are dissabled. That will fix everything. Also ensure you enter the CPU Multi is Manual and change it to the number you want.
