I thought ASUS P67 boards couldn't do this...

post #1 of 21

So everyone said that in order to OC on an ASUS board you needed all the EIST, C1E, and all that stuff enabled to be able to overclock, but I disabled it and I am able to overclock just fine and without all the crazy multiplier changes...

No just EIST, as when you turn turbo mode on ASUS boards EIST is automatically enabled even if you disable it. Try a multi detection program like realtemp or tmonitor.

Well I have not seen the CPU change frequency at all since I disabled it like before when it would go down to 1.6GHz, now it just stays at one frequency all the time.

i have never heard that and actually had to turn all that stuff off on my Asus to get to my clocks. but i dont have athe setup you guys do so maybe its diff now

Yeah I am just referring to the Sandy Bridge CPU's where everyone was saying the ONLY way to overclock them was via the turbo multiplier, so that your CPU only really overclocks under stress when the turbo mode kicks in.

its actually recommend to turn EIST on for high OCes, you don't have a high OC lol.

i have all that stuff disable and my cpu stays at 5ghz all the time. Just like all times, i don't really trust seeing my cpu at 1600mhz and the kicking into high gear. i had a bug that i ran heaven and notice how low my FPS were, when i exit to windows notice that my cpu never kicking in to 5ghz, stayed in 1600mhz. After that i disable it and havent had any problems keeping it at 5ghz at all time.

the idle temp has change from 22c to around 28c and i don't really worry about cpu power comsuption since i have 2 gtx 580.

Well I haven't really tried to do anything yet... that is just what the Auto Tuner thing gave me because I clicked it for giggles.

Now I am at 4.8 (100x48) at 1.4v

I thought with all the voltage and frequency changes that would put more stress on the components of the motherboard vs. having it static at one value all the time...

According to The Ultimate Sandy Bridge OC Guide

EIST-DISABLE
C3, C6 States-DISABLE
CPU Thermal Monitor-DISABLE
But you have to remember, the architecture is still quite new and we are still learning the best ways to OC this beast. And Sin wrote that we should keep it disabled for the moment. Not that it must stay disabled, or that that is best practice. His guide was based on the Gigabyte series of P67 boards.

Basically what I did.

Now my CPU sits @ 4ghz all the time!

Until I get a new cooler of course. Then I'm shooting for at least 4.8ghz.

All I had to do was to disable C1E, C3, and C6 to end all that crappy multi jumping.
