|the CPU i have now used to do the same thing before i overclocked it, after i overclocked it stoped slowing down when idle|
What I mean is the following:
Before I overclocked my cpu it was rated at 3000MHz (multiplier 15 x fsb 200). When idle (with Speedstep enabled) my multiplier would drop by one point so I would get 2800MHz (multiplier 14 x fsb 200).
After I overclocked to fsb 227 it was rated 3405MHz (multiplier 15 x fsb 227). When idle, however, it drops to 3178MHz (multiplier 14 x fsb 227).
It's all relative to the fsb. But it will still decrease that multiplier down to 14.
