This is a Stupid Question Tags: CPUs Asus Computer Overclocking Last response: May 8, 2011 1:55 PM in Overclocking Share xander25 May 7, 2011 4:04:50 PM I'm new to overclocking but with the purchase of my ASUS P8P67 DELUXE and my 2500K I thought I'd give it a whirl. The first thing I did was just let ASUS run ther Autotune from ASUS SUITE II. In my BIOS it says TARGET TURBO 4468MHZ but my computer only reads ~3.4GHZ in both the primary BIOS and Windows. The Turbo Multiplier is set to 44 and Autotune set my BcLK to 103.00. My stupid question is whether the computer is overclocked to 4.5 or not. Does the target multiplier mean that the computer will go to 4.5 when needed? Should it be running at 4.5 all the time to be actually overclocked to that? Thanks!
