hi guys i have no idea how to activate back cpu save mode, I overclock my AMD phenom X6 from 3.2 to 4.0 and now the mhz always stay on 4.0. Before overclocked my the motherboard was capable to only use 3.2 just when need it. Any idea?

Another question is? my cpu is overclocked to 4.0, max temperature with corsair h50 playing MW2 is 37C.
Im using dual channel Kingston HyperX 1600-DDR3 unganged mode.
CPU volt 1.5
Memory at Auto 1600

I hear heating is CPU enemies. what the higher overcloked I can do with this information?

thank you

When you raise the BE multiplier beyond 'stock' you lose C&Q. You have a number of options to consider. A third-party utility like PhenomMsrTweaker may help you.

Or you may over-clock 'old-school' by using the system clock set to 240MHz (drop your RAMs divider from 800 to 667 in the BIOS, and your RAMs will run stock spec with the system clock at 240MHz).

16x240MHz= 3.84GHz at load (or 4x240MHz - 960MHz at idle with C&Q)

Your UD5 can take the system clock much higher but you will have to further reduce your RAMs divider to 533 (if you are interested). This will require you to run you RAMs at less than stock speed (not really a biggie from a performance standpoint -- you should be able to reduce your timings to more than make up for the loss of overall memory speed).

16x250MHz will return you to 4GHz --- but at the 533 divider your RAMs will be running 5.33x250MHz, or 1333MHz. Could be a wiener for yahs ....

Danmm that sound difficult for me lol but thank u for that information, ill leave like that. i dont think running at 4.0 all the time will affect the cpu, my highest temperature gaming is 37c and with stress test 44c.

i have another question for u, sorry im new overclocking my pc. i have this memory Kingston HyperX DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800),
on newegg said the timing have to be 9-9-9-27 but my motherboard only use that timing when the memory is running at 1333, when i overclock, it automatically use 11-11-11-29. it's that ok? what happend if i manually set 9-9-9-27 at 1600?

Manually setting 9-9-9-27 should work just dandy!

hi again, my motherboard does not let me pass post bios with 9-9-9-27. it say overclock faulty, any idea why is doing that? the stock memory time is 9-9-9-27
but it work fine when i set memory time on auto 11-11-11-29. :o

I don't know :D 

I'm assuming that your memory is on the GB QVL list .... I would suggest downloading CPUz and comparing the timings in the memory tab with the timings listed in the SPD tab.

That might give us a few ideas.

Also -- GB MBs are bad to over-volt with voltage settings on *Auto* so carefully monitor where you stand. It may be necessary for you to venture into the LLC (or load line calibration) menu to tweak your voltage swings a bit. LLC helps minimize the impact of volt swings when over-clocking to gain stability.

CPUz show same timing of my Bios, if u see below SPD time is 9-9-9-24 thats not even the stock timing of the memory. LLC i dont see that option.

+1 Still with the same problem... My mobo: Gigabyte 890GPA-UD3H Rev. 2.0

Any ideas?

Should I use them @ 1600 11-11-11-29 or just leave it @ 1333 9-9-9-27???
