Sorry for the double post guys. I just wanted to share a pic that shows two everest windows open at the same time and all the information I get from those two windows. I will post more picks if you guys are interested, like the differences in my ram bandwith when I overclock the cpu and ram vs the stock settings I'm running ATM. Enjoy




EDIT: Below I have a decent CPU OC while underclocing my Ram and you can see how the ram spds are compared from stock cpu and overclock cpu




The next picture below is of the same CPU overclock but I added the Ram overclock into the equation for Ram bandwith comparissons.

Untill then I don't think monitoring your mobo ram is possible unless you physically attatch a temp sensor on the ram modules and connect it to a mobo fan header or a fan controller with a temp monitor built in.

Good Luck,

GANDALF21502, I see a stock GPU cooler who has a stock cpu cooler that you are refering to? I'm confused, did I miss something
I am referring to the PWM, the memory that is attached to the mobo, not the RAM in the DIMM slots

Oh sorry about that. I know DFI uses a program but I can't remember the name ATM and there is Motherboard Monitor 5. MM5 is a little tricky to get set up. I gave up on it all together. I had a lack of patience but there is a lot of sensors to pick from in that software maybe you could give it a try and tell us how it works for you.

Good Luck,

Lol i know it is anti-overclocking. But there is really no point of have my cpu at 3.5Ghz when I all I am doing is leaving it on overnight and downloading. I would prefer for it to auto throttle it down to 1.0GHz. I just do it manually now.

Save some power and don't wear out my new chip

Great point. I have set my bios bank 1 to stock and bank 2 to overclock. I genereally run off bios bank 1 unless I run a game like crysis or COD4 that requires a little more horse power. In that case I will simply use the bios setting in bank 2. I have never used cool and quiet.

If I use cool n quiet then do I have to load or install cool n quiet software as well and going even one step further would I have to disable the cool n quite software in the windows environment before I select my bios bank #2 for overclocking w/o the cool n quite feature.

I have been wanting to use cool n quiet but am afraid that once I install it on the os that I will from that point on always have overclocking issues.

Does any one know any thing about this.

Thank you,

N2G

Hiya,

I read somewhere that Cool & Quit is not too good. You can get better stability and a better undervoltage when using another program.

I use Rightmark CPU clock utility to undervolt my CPU and to automatically change CPU speed depending on processor power need (called performance on demand).

What I do is, I OC my CPU to where I want it for everyday use in the BIOS. Then I use rightmark to change the voltage settings of the highest and lowest FID. In my case I have the voltage at FID5 set to 0.875V and at 15.5 set to 1.25V. Now since The motherboard offsets the voltage on my board by approx 0.05V My actual Voltages are 0.925V at FID5 and 1.30 at FID15.5.

Spoiler alert:
Undervolting can be dangerous when you set the voltages too low and you let it automatically start at system startup. Because you may never get the chance to set the voltage back to the desired setting due to system instability.

I have a dutch manual for undervolting and I got it from a leading Dutch website (called hardware.info). In case you cannot find an english manual you can ask me and I will try to rewrite it in english.

- Super

Yeah, it is when you've got an unlocked cpu multiplier.... I just discovered.
When I had my Athlon 6000+ installed I was tied to a 15x multiplier anyway and had to do my overclocking using just the FSB. So I just left multiplier to Auto and let Cool n Quiet do it' s thing. Life was good. Now, with this new 720BE, if I want to use the higher multipliers I have to disable cool n quiet otherwise it effectively locks the max multiplier to the stock 14x.

Thing is I use my PC for work as well as playing games so still want to use Cool n Quiet as well as play about with overclocking. Only way AFAIK is to have two bios profiles set up and choose which one at boot. Not ideal really. Wish Asus could release a new bios which allows cool n quiet to use higher than stock multipliers!!

ME BAD...sorry, misread the GPU cooler for the CPU cooler...

Not with Vista. If you disable cnq in the bios and start windows, the cnq utilities just refuse to run and you just get a message box telling you to enable it in the bios if you want to use it. Checked clock freq and it is locked to that specified in bios.

From memory I think XP is the same except you have to install the driver software. I have an XP home theatre machine running cnq too - I can check if you like?
