    Talking 108GHz E8500!

    First off, I am completley new to Gigabyte, and would like to express my joy and gratitude to Gigabyte and everyone here!

    I have been having great fun tuning this board for quite some time now and have learned many new things reading this forum. Thanks to everyones informative and useful posts, especially all admin and moderators!

    I have found my max OC with my components individually, and am now working on getting the excellent C.I.A. 2 program fully maxed out. So my PC idles at default settings, yet overclocks automatically, seemingly better than humanly possible. I have read here posted by Lsdmeasap, how overclocking should be done manually and not with this program.
    I think the CIA2 idea is excellent and can't wait to see this program mature. Please LSD, or anyone, feel free to input any ideas or comments.

    I am now starting to wonder if maybe this program is unwise since I have been receiving conflicting information from CPU-Z and Easy Tune 6 (ET6). While getting the Full Thrust option to successfully work with my PC. I started to notice momentary, insane FSB speeds. And up to 45GHz reported by ET6 CPU. Thats correct, 45000.00MHz! Of course it cannot be possible so I assume ET6 is incorrect, however majority of the time it appears to work perfectly. It only seems to act up when fully loading the PC (I use Prime 95) and running other programs at the same time. CPU-Z reports almost constant Max Speed of 3891CPU, 409 FSB, 409 DRAM.

    Sorry for the extremely long post, however I feel this program deserves it's own sticky, since it is such a great way for everyone to overclock their PC while still enabeling all halt states, stock idle speeds, and original OEM energy saving features.

    Now a little about my CIA2 Full Throttle overclocking settings:

    All BIOS Energy saving features Enabled, and Dynamic Energy saver
    ET6 reports: (Fluctuates rapidly)
    CPU: 3910MHz
    BUS: 411MHz
    FSB: 1644MHz

    Goes up to 4199MHZ, 5320MHz, etc. while I type this and stress test!

    Please, please, let this program be working!

    Thanks in advance for any and all input!

    Not real sure about Easy Tuner and CIA2 and all that. Basically I stay right away from stuff like that for the reasons that are floating around, and cause LSD said so. You should not be using CIA2 as from what I understand it will Overvolt your CPU Automagically which is not going to be good. If you insist on using it (which you should) then keep a super clock eye on your vcore and temps. Overclocking should be done from the MIT section in your BIOS. If you leave on EIST and the other thing that I keep forgetting it will throttle your CPU down a bit when not under load. Thats good enough for me. Im Sure when others reply they will say something similar

    Thanks for the input, good advice!

    I had to set vcore to 1.3V for stable full thrust. Never seen it go higher than that.

    Here is a pic of what I mean. Should I believe ET6 or CPU-Z?

    Yeah Im pretty sure your CPU isnt running @ 5.2Ghz. I would trust CPU-Z as Real temp also agree's with it. What did you set your FSB to?? You should really just set your overclock setting in the BIOS under the MIT Screen. Its much better. DISABLE CIA2

    P.S Unless you have a magic CPU there's no way on the planet you would get 5.2Ghz out of it (at all) with 1.232vcore as per Easyloon

    It seems you do not understand CIA2. The FSB is set to defaults/auto and is dynamically adjusted depending on load by CIA2. ENABLE CIA2 Save the planet!

    You will have to define "better than humanly possible."
    For example, my CPU does 22.599GFlops(1624MB) at 3.4GHz with IBT2.2 and it has half cache than yours.

    One thing I have noticed when I was trying to find my FSB limit was that I could get 425FSB by raising FSB and voltage with EasyTune, but when entered those values in BIOS I could not boot. So CIA2 may have an atvantage in this aspect.

    Not sure about Gflops, I am a noob in that department. By better than humanly possible I mean in my first post where I mention ET6 showed me up to 45GHz CPU speed. Thats correct, 45000.00MHz! Only adjustments I have made are in BIOS and I am not using ET6 other than to monitor.

    Feel free to fill me in about Gflops. I am sure I can tune this more and have really just started. Upon deciphering your post I ran IBT v.2.3 and improved my Gflops by not using my PC while running. 20.4758Gflops @ (1624MB)

    Thank you!

    Flops, floating point operations, are are one way to measure computing powr. Giga (mega, tera peta etc.) flops per second represent the amount of floating point operations can be doe by the computer.
    Of course different benchmarks may show gain where other show loss and vice versa.

    CPU speed, or CPU frequency, does not mean anything other than CPU speed. Do you care if your cengine can do 9000rpm but cannot go over 50mph?

    Yes using your OC when benchmarking will get lower results, quiting unnesessary backround applications may also lead to higher results.

    Thanks for all the infoe Chike!

    I also noticed your ram is running much faster than mine which is probably affecting performance.

    I have not finished tuning my ram since it is brand new. Was unsuccessful getting 2 sets of Corsair 8500C5C to run at specs.
