I have had great succes with the Core I7 and overclocking (and im a major noob). The problems I have lie in the default settings. I Defaulted my Bios so I could test the Speed Step Tech and Turbo Tech and what it was capable off and am having no succes. After loading all more cores to 100% I am still not having any luck getting the multiplier to show Higher than 12.0. Am i mistaken about what these options do? My understanding is that they would do like my AMD and auto throttle the Ratio to a higher amount under heavy load but @ the default settings it stays @ 12.0 Ratio with BCLK of 133 for a whopping 1.6ghz. What am I doing wrong? Contact me @ Shusien@live.com
@ Geofelt. Thanks that was my exact problem. Can't believe that was what was holding speed step back. Appreciate it. Going back to OC now lol.
@lashton. I understood how the OC works (at least the basics.) My problem lied in the fact that Speed Step wasnt doing what it was supposed to do. Thought it was a bios based problem but instead it lied in the OS. Thanks though.
