CPU-Z says ram is at 458.1 MHZ so my ram is runing at 916.2 MHZ. Is that to high? Will changing its speed to 667 MHZ get CPU speeds higher? I did not notice a diffance in proformance with old ram that was a 667 MHZ and new 800 MHZ ram so it might make higher clock speeds with it at 667.
Brisbane cores have been known for faulty temperature readings by software. Try using HW Monitor from CPUID, or Everest home edition. Also, whens the last time you flashed bios? Although its risky, sometimes the sensor needs a flash to tell you the right temps. Before i flashed bios it was telling me my temps were 50+.
Also that ram speed looks really high. Try lowering it to 667 ram then continue. As mentioned above, the RAM could be the issue; and it probably is since it's pretty high. At 667 ram your overclock will bring you back around 800 anyways.
as a matter of fact i had the same problem as you yesterday, and people were advising me the same thing; lowering the ram speeds seemed to fix it.
Edit- Cool And Quiet should be under Advanced Chipset features in BIOS, well thats where it is from me. If you cant find it, i noticed that turning vista power options to high performance disabled it, but i dont know what that will change so i dont recommend it.Edited by shibbiness - 6/25/08 at 2:47pm
