i7 970 times multipier question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guy,

Tried to overclock using miahallens guide "Overclocking with Power Saving Features Enabled….it’s getting better." over on techreactor.net and was able to go from 3.2GHz to 4GHz but couldn't get the idle speed to drop down to 12x multiplyer like it did when running at stock 3.2GHz, so I reset my bios back to 3.2 and now when in idle it stays at 3.2 with 24x multiplier instead of dropping to 1.6GHZ with a 12x multiplier like it used too.

So my question is, is there a setting in bios to get my multiplier to drop down to 12x multiplier during idle state?

Yes.
1.Enable "SpeedStep"
2.Enable "SleepStates"
The second one isn't required but can be useful if the first doesnt work.
