I have some problems with OC my CPU. I got a ASUS Striker II Formula and a Q6600 + TRUE.

 

1. I tried to OC to 3.0Ghz and in my BIOS/startup it says just that, but when i get to windows... well look at the pics and u understand, it's 2.4Ghz. Whats that about?

 

2. And if i look at the CPU-Z memorytab it says my max bandwidth is 6400, but i have 8500 memory?!

 

3. And one more thing, it says my memory have a timing of 5 5 5 18, i would belive it should be 5 5 5 15...?!?!

 

Sorry if they are a bit big... :[pouts: at least i have a nice bg :D:

if you have all 4 slots populated, there are dozens upon dozens of threads here describing the issue with motherboard memory controllers not the ram causing the necessary drop in ram speed.

 

sorry for your disappointment.

Hi

 

Also, your cpu multiplier is set to 6, your cpu is actually running 1/3 underclocked in some of your posted cpuz shots

 

EIST is a technology that reduces the CPU multipler when the system is in an idle or low use state. It increases the multiplier when more power is necessary.

 

EIST works by reducing the multiplier to 6. The multiplier varies. Your chip has a 266 MHz FSB clock rate to yield its 2400 MHz effective CPU Speed, so the 6x multiplier used in EIST puts the idle speed at 1.596 MHz. So you are, in fact seeing EIST work properly. If you increase the FSB, you increase the range of EIST.

 

If you increased the FSB to 333 then you would have the range of 333 X 6 <--> 333 X 9
