Down clocking a cpu

Would down clocking a CPU that is 3.4GHz - 3.9GHz turbo boost still let it reach it's 3.9GHz turbo boost? For example a 3570k. in the bios settings All core ratio: 34 (3.4GHz) to 17 (1.7GHz) So can it be 1.7GHz - 3.9GHz Turbo boost or would it end up making something lower then that?

  1. Why one Earth would you want to downclock your cpu? It downclocks itself to save power. It does not run at 3.4 all the time, probably more like 1.8.

    If you download cpu-z you'll see what it's actually running at.

    no man
    the CPU speed vary with the multiplier, lets get an example
    CPU A
    FSB 166, multiplier 10 to 15. so you have 1660 in idle, and 2490 in full charge (turbo mode)

    if you downclock you will need to lower your FSB, example
    Same CPU but with FSB 133. 1330 in idle, and 1995 in full (Turbo)


    understand?


    sorry about my english im brazilian
  3. It doesn't make any sense to downclock the cpu, it does that itself to save power.

    I wasn't really planning on that and ok dude but if your not going to provide and answer then don't post on my thread at all :P. I hate criticizers .
  5. I'm not criticizing, I'm telling you it does it on it's own.
