hi there,

I just got my new pc with intel core 2 duo + 2gb ram ddr2 pc6400....
and it was oc'ed for me @2,7Ghz

so I downloaded cpu-z and core temp and they both give different stats than the actuel stats in the bios....
but core temp is the most right because it says 2,7ghz but not with 450x6 multiplier...

screenshot:


so could anyone explain/help me with this weird stuff going on, on my brand new computer

This is normal.

What motherboard do you have? You have a feature that laptop have enabled in your motherboard's BIOS. It'll declock your speed like what you are seeing when you are idle, and will jump back to max clock speed whenever you load something.

The feature can be called C1E, Speed Step and probably more names that I forget.

I personally wouldn't worry about this. I like the feature.

And also, Welcome to Overclock dot net!

Well if you want your PC to run at its normal "speed" the entire time then disable speedstep / C1e / throttling.
I think i'm going to do a trial and see the effects of it though, since it is summer, it is hot, and electricity bills are through the roof.

Maybe i'm mistaken... but i could have sworn it was either you nickd, or someone with a very similar name... that came here and posted those dirty pics lol...

-Saves 10w. XD!

Well, I found out that there's no need for it to run at 3.2GHz at idle. Waste of speed.
