Cool and quiet? Tags: Overclocking Last response: May 6, 2010 5:21 PM in Overclocking Share daihok May 5, 2010 3:25:23 AM I saw is the overclocking guide that you should disable cool and quiet. Is there any particular reason for this?

Like set it to 1.2V for 3.6GHz, yet it drops to 0.8V for 800MHz which is too low possibly? m 0 l fisshy a b K Overclocking May 6, 2010 5:21:31 PM Yes it is simlar to Gigabytes EiST function. It works on some strange algorhythm So it wont cause a crash It drops CPU voltages and Turns the Multiplier down to 6x Its safe and will save you a bit on electricity m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
