That's not mine but it surely is a nice oc. The screenshot belongs to user intelchief. I took this image from this post: https://www.overclock.net/forum/8-in...nside-221.html

You might want to read and follow from that post.

Retrorockit 47x is obviously bogus. 25x, and 26x is Turbo frequency, you can see they're only running 2 cores to get that speed. It may be possible with Throttlestop to get Turbo speed on all cores on a locked CPU. I think Intels XTU tuning software can do it also. I just take the easy way out and run one of the unlocked CPUs.
Note the ASUS P6T mb on the 47x run. That's the usual suspect on these runs.

Vadlok Thanks for the replies.

Then from the top 15 chart at CPU-Z, there is only two legit frequency validations, it seems. There are a lot of 25 and 26 multipliers reported too.

Retrorockit I've seen some bogus CPUZ with raised multipliers on locked CPUs, even on some of the 2QPI CPUs that are all locked. There seems to be one ASUS MB that allows this spoof.
It drove me nuts with my locked BIOS overclocking that requires unlocked CPUs until I figured out what was going on.
Here's an X5680 with a 39x160 validation. It looks like EVGA SR2 has the bug also.

They always seem to be the fastest one, and have a very low voltage also.

I checked the X5670's page, when I saw the first place for the CPU has a whopping 8883 Mhz (47*[email protected]) overclock(http://valid.x86.fr/pxu1zi). I think that's just impossible, some CPU-Z bug or something. Anyone encountered a bug like that? The maximum multiplier for the X5670 is 24(25 while turbo single core).
What are your thoughts on this? Can it be reported somehow? I was lazy reading through the whole 1500 pages to find if there was talk about this in the past, I registered just to ask this question. And to share my overclock somewhere [IMG class=inlineimg]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/IMG]

One more quick question: can you make the X5670 to use the 25 multiplier for all of its cores?
I’ve wondered this before too, I’m suspicious of some of the 56xx Xeon validations on cpu-z. Here’s a similar one with an x5650: https://valid.x86.fr/4554he

My guess is these are bogus. I think the upper limits for Westmere x58 under ln2 is somewhere between 5-6ghz.
