Hi!

II have finally some time to complete my new PC build and I am having some problems setting it correctly I think.

I have a Core i7 920 that I do not want to overclock but it look like the BIOS of my EVGA X58 3X SLI wants to overclock it.

Under "Frequency/Voltage Control" I see the following

CPU Clock Ratio [20 X]
CPU Host Frequency(MHz) [133]
Target CPU Frequency 2800MHz (133x21)

Since that CPU frequency is 2.66 and its multiplier is AFAIK 20 that last line seems to suggest the board is overclocking the CPU which I do not want to do.

Is there any way I can make sure the CPU is not overclocked in any way?

Thank you!

Nick

Get CPU-Z at cpuid.com

check your cpu-z. it might say 20x133, and turbo boost kicks in when not all cores are needed. so the actual voltage and power draw is the same.

You can disable turbo boost in the bios. Option name is different on each bios. But it should be in the section where speedstep and eist are.

Hi Westcoast!

It looks like you were indeed right, from what I've read it looks like this is indeed Intel Turbo Boost at work.

CPU-Z tells me that it's currently running at 21x and there is an option to disable Turbo (though I don't think they say Intel Turbo Boost) in the BIOS.

Thank you very much for your help!

Nick
