hm... i got the ahtlon ii x2 which is 2.9ghz and i overclocked it to 3.3ghz with amd overdrive with cool n quiet enabled...
in my machine cool and quiet just reduces the multiplier when the processor is idle and cranks back to 3.3 when i do anything processor heavy..
when i game it stays at 3.3ghz
That's interesting.. because that's what I've been reading in other forums. But Cool and Quiet somehow doesn't acknowledge the fact that my bus speed is at 236... or does it?
When running benchmark tests, with QandC disabled (which reads 3.3ghz), I get pretty much the same results as with QandC enabled (reading only 2.8ghz).
So I'm wondering if it's really a false reading. But I highly doubt it.. considering with CnQ turned off it reads fine... but then why are my benchmark tests revving out the same results? but
Would disabling cool and quiet be harmful to my chip? As in.. would its lifespan be reduced? My temps are about 45 -48 underload. Idle is usually 39-41. Would its lifespan be reduced if i disable CnQ and leave it running at 3.3 ghz all the time?
