I also just noticed that under the asus cpu frequency monitor, it always lists 1.6 ghz at idle, and always the turbo 4.4 Ghz when in use. It is listed as being and is supposed to be at 3.4, is this a problem? Should I change this? What have others done?
that is how it is supposed to work, it will use the higher turbo freq when running lightly threaded software. so dont change it.
what do you mean "Every game I do, the gpu immediately goes to 100%
and the temps range from 64 to 70 again"
if you mean the load, then it's just the way you want it to be. Temps are fine for full load situation.
