One thing that's confusing me is the the following:
RealTemp reports my FSB multiplier as being 1 higher than I set it at now. When it was at 9, RealTemp reported (9x333.34 = ~3.000MHz). Then I bumped it up to 10 and I see 11x333.34 = 3666.76. Any idea if it's right and the PC isn't using 10 or if I'm at 10 and it's reporting wrong. I know it's using some kind of measurement and not just the settings because at one point I had Execute Disable on and it was showing the multiplier bouncing around. So I figure it's right and for some reason my PC isn't using the 10 I told it to. The thing is, I'd prefer 10 over 11 because the temps are getting a bit high (42c-min idle and 72c-max under 100% load). I only have the stock cooling from my last CPU so I understand I need to get a new one (next paycheck), but I think it would be fine for now if I was doing 10 (3.333Mhz) with temps a bit lower -- or I'd at least like to try. Any thoughts?
PS I'm putting this thread in the CPU OC section because I think RealTemp is correct
