This !

Why would you want a constant, high clock/voltage when your cpu will spend most it's time sitting idle.
You'll save money on the electricity bill, won't stress your components as much, wont dump more heat in your box/room uselessly.

Motherboards are pretty good with C states and adjusting volatges with sb, it shouldn't change much in terms of stability.
The only reason why I'd lock the cpu @ its max would be maybe in the case of a folding machine that 24/7 runs at it's max.

I turned off c1, c3, c6, I turned off speedstep. I left Turbo on, I left the bclk to 100, since I found out that can only go to like 110 maybe. I set the turbo step to 48 for a 4.8 clock. I set the Phase to Extreme and T probe to Extreme as-well. CPU voltage I set to 1.375 and the ram is set to 1.65.

Once I boot into windows, the Temps of the chip is idles around 30 to 35 degrees so I think the clock is higher than windows registers but I'm not sure.

I'm really curious why the chip idles at 1.6ghz but then spikes to 4.8ghz. Is it at all possible to make the chip stay at a constant 4.8ghz?


You can keep it at 4.8, but like everyone already said... Why?

The reason you are idling at 30-35° is because your CPU drops to 1.6Ghz, typically along with the voltage you're pumping through the CPU (depending on exactly how you are set up in BIOS). 30-35° is not abnormal with an H50 cooler (best case senario will only be slightly less than 30°, unless your fan is running @ 100% all the time, then you might see 26-27°; with an outside ambient of 20°), if your Voltage isn't dropping below 1V @ idle. If you want it to be cooler at idle, adjust the PWM minimum fan speed to a higher value (for wherever you have the H50 fan plugged in, in the BIOS. Running at a constant 4.8, with your H50, your idle temps and voltage are going to be considerably higher... all the time. Why not give the CPU a rest, and time to cool down. As someone else said, your CPU will be idling most of the time anyway.

Regarding your OC, have you tried to lower your DRAM voltage down? Your Corsair Vengeance memory is rated for 1.5V. I run mine at 1.53xxxV (1.5V is not stable... go figure). You don't need that much voltage to those Mem Modules.

Quick question , for overclocking, during your benches using prime95 are you all Disabling Intel Adaptive Thermal Monitor?

Im wondering if it is the same function as the Thermal Monitor that that was recommended to be disabled on the Gigabyte-p67-UD7, which was the mobo i had prior to the Sabertooth p67. If anyone knows if it is the same , that would be helpful.

On the Gigabyte UD7 , they recommend disabling c states, and the Thermal Monitor.
If it is the same thing, i think i will do the same.

Currently i am working on singling out the 4500 Ghz OC , i was running prime for about 30 minutes then crashed. Was running with a vcore of 1.35, which was what i ran on the UD7, (high voltage , i know, got a "bad" batch)

Any insight that you guys think would be helpful toss it at me! New to the UEFI, pretty much follwed the setting for 4.8 from http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1578110 minus the voltage they used of course.

EDIT: LOL , hmmm i may have crashed for a really dumb reason, since i just got this board it has a fresh windows installation, and monitor is set to turn off after 10 mins, and computer itself is set to sleep after 30...hmmm lol

New BIOS for vanilla P8P67:

http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/LGA1155/P8P67/P8P67-ASUS-1401.zip

Directly from ASUS.com.

Should go live tomorrow March 20th.

People run full speed all the time because c-states/speedstep hurt performance. Shouldn't everyone know that 140 pages in? Even the official asus guide recommends turning them off for benching. And the downclock isn't why it runs down to 30-40c on idle, it gets that cool at idle even on 4.5ghz+. I'd rather have my pc running at full speed than save 18 watts.

I think it is more of a personal preference thing. I like having speedstep. When I am browsing the web, or stuff like that why do I need 4.6ghz? When I game or do something that needs that CPU power then it just ramps up. I mean it takes less than a second for it to ramp up, you aren't losing that much performance with that.

I have c states disabled but don't mind the speedstep. It seems like it kicks in around 10% load or less. I havent found any problems when benching using speedstep enabled either.
Although c states are only recommended to be disabled when using synthetic testing like prime on 50+ multipliers.

Everytime I restart on p67p8 deluxe board, (1tb harddrive plugged into the marvell port(will change that later)) I always see a " No Physical Disk" on the booting screen but everything else works fine. Anyone know what that is about?

Also how does the clear cmos button the back panel work? Do I just shut the computer off then hold it for a bit and power back on?

thanksd
