    Throttlestop overclocking Desktop PCs

    Software monitoring seems to be at least as bad on Linux. So, it sounds like you're indicating it's a software or C state issue if I understand you correctly. I was mistaken, no C state control in the BIOS after all, the only power option is ACPI Suspend Type S1 or S3. Oh well, it was worth a...

    Throttlestop overclocking Desktop PCs

    Thank you for taking the time to explain that. I gave it a shot but unfortunately the CPU still downclocks. Maybe the lock bit is set? Although I verified that it changed MSR 0x1A0 properly. BIOS is set to C1 only, not sure if I have to disable that, will have to try that next.

    Thank you for the detailed explanation, I really appreciate it. Sorry I should have mentioned again that I'm on Linux and cpufreq doesn't seem to work with my board, which is why I'm curious about MSRs. But I appreciate the refresher on Windows power options as well, I haven't used it in awhile...

    Interesting. No experience in RAM dividers either, unfortunately, but I'm curious what potential there is with an open divider. On the topic of RAM, I want to throw it out there that (apparently) adding RAM can increase boot time. My board now gets stuck on post for 60sec or so. Doesn't bother...

    Thank you for the explanation and for getting back so quickly. I hear you, mine aren't aren't either. :) No worries, just wanted to make sure I understood correctly. Turbo seems to work, so I thought it unnecessary. But you're correct; the CPU wouldn't actually use the higher multi unless...

    Throttlestop overclocking Desktop PCs

    The MSR info you've provided is incredibly useful for overclocking in Linux, and very much appreciated. Increasing wattage makes perfect sense to me. The rest of it, I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around. I have some questions, if you'd be so kind as to help: " MSR 0x1AD - EDX =...
