    Default easy tune question

    Since I seem to be having troubles overclocking my Q6600 manually, I decided to give Easy Tune a try, to see what the results would be.

    I set quickboost to the second option: 3.44 Ghz. Rebooted. And the easy tune panel now shows me as running according to that speed.

    But when I look at information in core temp I see the following:

    2580.04mhz (430.01 x6.).

    This is my first time trying to overclock so I am new to all of this. I am a bit confused about how to read the numbers. is 2580 equal to 3.44? How does one do the calculations?

    Thanks for your help.

    It's at 430x6 because of speedstep energy saving technology. It raises to x9 when your computer is in load conditions.

    If you don't want this feature, then go into BIOS and disable C1E & EIST.

    EasyTune6 is good for testing out different voltages, but the "quickboost" settings are bad, and doesn't help you become a better overclocker.

    I recommend that you read the sticky regarding memory settings and read various threads that talk about voltages. Easytune tends to set some quite a bit higher than necessary, sometimes dangerously so.
