Iâ€™ve recently upgraded from a AthlonXP 1700+ and a ATI 9500pro to a Q6600 and a 8800GTS.
- And discovered that I got to much power
Trying to downclock the CPU, in the bios, Iâ€™ve reach a lower limit on 230Mhz FSB; why?.
The motherboard allows a setting of 100MHZ but wonâ€™t boot below 230Mhz (and yes, the RAM is async, running at 600-800Mhz)
Is this a known lower limit for the Q6600 CPU?
Is this a known lower limit for the nforce 650i? (my motherboard is a gigabyte n650i-DS4)
Setting 0,975volt in bios, for the CPU, gives 0.91 volt according to speedfan and CPU-Z
RMclock still reports the CPU ramping the voltage between 1.165 volt and 1.235 volt according to SpeedstepÂ©
Are they both correct?
â€“ (I know that the CPU uses different volt-grides, to different parts of the CPU architecture)
