What is this I don't even...

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Just have a look...



I have my BIOS set to the standard overclocker state (disabled the EIST and other things), voltages on auto and just raised multi to 40. i5-2500k and I'm running the P6A BIOS with P67A-UD3P board.

Please halp mah.

Maybe its the BIOS? I dunno... Everything seems to act wierd...

I also had a checksum error after flashing to the F5 BIOS, and it reflashed it back to F2, (then I flashed it back to F6A the newest one).

Intel SpeedStep is on, change that in the BIOS

I disabled it all except this thing called PROTHOS or something of the likes, and C1/C6 state changing or something.

Should have been Eist. In either case, as long as the voltage doesn't go over what you pit in the BIOS, and you don't notice instability, you're fine.

Thats what I thought as well. I honestly dont know why it is downclocking itself but as long as it doesnt go over what you have in the BIOS you will be fine.

I have the same thing going on with my desktop, but I have speedstep on to keep power consumption and heat down when under light load.

Why is Coretemp reporting 3.3GHz then 7.7GHz then 5.5GHz while the vCore is jumping around places?

Did SB make most of these programs useless?

If I can't get CPUZ to display the right voltage...what CAN? lol

Everest reports a solid 4.0GHz the whole time, while CPUZ reports 1.6GHz 90% of the time with random spikes to 4.0GHz...

What is Bi-Directional PROCHOT? lol

The programs probably just haven't updated since the release of SB

Bi-directional PROCHOT: Mechanism of protection of the processor off the computer if the temperature of the processor becomes too large.

It seems that when I disable C1E, C3/C6 and EIST, but leave Thermal Throttling and PROCHOT enabled then the computer fails to boot and then I get a checksum BIOS error and it reflahses to F2 and resets all settings.

It's happened twice as of now, and right after i change those settings.

When I had C3/C6 still enabled it did not give me any errors.
