    Default X58A-UD3R Overclocking itself, why?

    my cpu multiplier stock is supposed to be at 133x24 this is what the BIOS says for me as well under the PC health tab and yet when I boot up my PC and run CPUID it shows my core clock @ x25? why is this, Ive noticed my CPU temps have been higher as well so im sure its not a error in the CPUID program, is my MOBO defective? what could be causing this? thanks.

    UPDATE: Upon checking my post screen im seeing that its reporting my i7 960 running at 133x25, when it infact is supposed to be running at 133x24. Ive tried clearing the CMOS but to no avail.. Im also noticing that my cpu voltage is consitently stuck at 1.26v when before it would fluctuate..

    makesure all cores are ebabled in bios,enable c1e and eist to make the cpu downclock when idle,note that the cpu wont throttle if cou voltage is set to a fixed amount,it needs to be on auto or normal for it to throttle,check windows/Control Panel\System and Security\Power Options

    balanced profile=throttle at idle
    high performance=full speed(no throttle down at idle)

    Thank you so much for replying to my threads! I'm sure it becomes monotonous answering my trivial questions :P.. So I did make the adjustments accordingly and im seeing now that CPUZ is showing some throttling at idle and its not stuck at 1.26v its fluctuating along with clock speeds, my temps have come back down as well! awesome!! I have one last question though... should I be concerned about my CPU running a multiplier of 25 when under load despite the fact that I had the multiplier in BIOs set at 24? or is this part of the whole turbo boost technology that these i7s employ from time to time? thanks!

    Have you loaded optimized defaults after clearing CMOS or at all?
    Actually it should run up to x26 depnding on how many cores under load.

    I did load optimized defaults after clearing the cmos but since the optimized defaults were showing serveral overvoltage/overheating leds on the mobo I had to bring some voltages down a little, I was helped in another thread regarding that though..

    if your at stock cpu clocks you can try setting cpu voltage to normal,if you dont want cpu to run at 25x then disable intel turbo boost,

    Turbo boost is a key feature of any i3/i5/i7 so I strongly suggest not disabling it.

    It's good you are now happy with what the PC is doing etc but definitely no need to worry about it. As long as voltages aren't crazy and temps are OK then that's just fine.

    Mine would run at an x25 mutliplier if I enabled C3/C6/C7 Power States. So that would be equivilent to the 960 running at x26.
    Will using the balanced power plan lower performance over the high performance power plan?
