Hi, I usually leave my computer on overnight to do manage stuff like downloading, messaging, being alarmclock, and etc.
I am looking for a way to software-underclock the cpu/gpu clock and voltage as well as case/cpu/gpu fan speed to reduce power consumption, dust collection, and noise. I prefer software overclock because
I wanted an ability to return to full performance in an instant when desire.
What option do I have.
hd6950 -shader unlocked
Core i7 2600K
Cooler Master CM 690 II Plus
PSU Corsair TX 750 W
G.Skill pc-12800 8G (DDR3-1600 4GB×2)
WD20EARS (2TB SATA300)
The GPU has it built it and it is passive so you can't alter it's settings.It's permminitly on power saving mode.Your CPU has this function but you might have to enable it.I'm not familair with Intel's but i'm sure it's the same as AMD.Their is a setting for it in the BIOS.
Um yeah but should It not idle at 1600, pop to 3400 at load, then finally push 3800 when stressed?
or is it because i set "Ai Overclock tuner" thing to "X.M.P."in bios? which according to manual saids "If you install memory modules supporting the extreme memory profile(XMP) technology, choose this item to set the profiles supported by your memory modules for optimizing the system performances." Which actually is not that descriptive.
