MSI K9A D.O.T. help Tags: AMD Windows Vista MSI Overclocking Last response: August 4, 2008 8:55 PM in Overclocking Share Celtic August 3, 2008 6:04:39 PM When i set my D.O.T. to say 10% and reboot cpuz can see the OC for about 30 seconds, Then it resets itself to stock speed. Is there a setting in Vista 64 that could be doing this? If not, what am i doing wrong ? More about : msi k9a Lupiron August 3, 2008 9:47:01 PM It resets itself to stock speed? or does the multiplier simply go to a lower value? If speed step, EIST or C1E is enabled, they can, while idle, make it look like you are at a lesser speed. Its a power saving function. You can check for them in the Bios. Just run some stuff when it steps down the speed, and if it instantly jumps back to OC mode, then that is what it is! --Lupi blackwidow_rsa August 3, 2008 10:33:42 PM You need to give a bit more info if you want a solid conclusion Related resources MSI K9A Help - Forum MSI K9A Platinum wont post at all!! please help - Forum MSI K9A Frustration, Please Help - Forum MSI K9A Platinum - 4GiB RAM as 3GB usage RAM memory. - Forum Help k9a motherboard and 5770 videocard want work - Forum Can't find your answer ?
