Turbo Overclock with MSI P67-GD55
« on: 16-February-11, 06:32:43 »

Hey,

I'm trying to overclock my 2500K, but I don't want it to run always on the OC Clockrate. Now I read it should be possible to change the Turbo Multiplier so the OC only applies when heavy CPU Power is needed. When I check my BIOS and go to Overclock>CPU Features. There I find: core 0 on 37x,1 on 36x, 35x,34. But the problem is, that I can't change these values. Is this locked at the GD55 Motherboard?

System specs:
Latest BIOS version
Intel Core i5 2500K
MSI P67-GD55
4 GB RAM Kingston HyperX 1600Mhz
Samsung Spinpoint F3
Nvidia GTX275

Please read this article to better understand the turbo boost technology. http://www.legitreviews.com/article/1501/2/
The technology applies max turbo boost to 3,7GHz only on lighter loads, i.e. when one core is being used. As sson as more than one core is under load the turbo boost will reduce until under full load the processor will only run at 3,4GHz. This ensures smooth transitioning between loads and a better performance under loads. There is no reason to disable this.
Furthermore, you will find when your PC idles, the clock frequency will actually go down to 1,6GHz or there abouts to conserve energy and reduce heat generation. Under light loads the Processor may run anywhere in between the minimum and maximum defined Intel clock frequencies.
If you were to increase your CPU multiplier to say 40 and leave everything else alone, then the maximum core clock applied will be 4,0GHz, but the PC will still reduce back to idle when there is no load. Give that a try and observe the behaviour. Download CPU-Z to monitor the voltages and frequencies.

That is the problem. The PC won't clock back when idle.

check in your BIOS if C state and EIST are enabled. If they are disabled, then it won't clock back.

Enabled C state and now it works good. Clocking itself back when idle. Going to 4Ghz when load.
Srange that default C state is disabled.

Glad thats sorted. The C state is normally enabled by default, at least all boards I have had, it has been.Perhaps you disabled it unknowingly at some stage while trying various BIOS settings.
Save your current BIOS settings, and then do a reset to factory defaults and check what it sets to. If it sets it to Disabled by default, then I suggest you report that to MSI technical and get their opinion on it.

Hi, a old topic but have exact same problem like aeonfast. Has tested all and my cpu won´t clock down in idle. Both C-state and EIST are enebled, I had even intel turbo boost enebled. My cpu are manually overclocked if that matters.
