    Arrow i5 2500k @4.0ghz constant not idling PLEASE READ AND HELP

    Hello guys new to these forums but i need a hand i was on another forum asking how to overclock to 4 and was told i can adjust cpu ratio to x40 and leave everything else stock.i have the cpu running at 4.0ghz now my only worry is that the cpu in cpuz shows that its constantly at 4.0ghz i thought it would downclock when im not doing anything demanding and go up to 4 when im gaming have i missed something il attach a pic here so you can see what i mean

    enable C1E and speedstep. are you using offset voltage?
    You don't know me and that's the way i like it!

    CPU frequency and Vcore fluctuate depend on the work load, that's normal, offset or not, you can't control it once the speed stepping is enable.

    So... your CPU can easily take 80c without it being a problem, 55c is a rather nice temperature if you ask me. If I am correct, the CPU built-in "defense" against overheating is around 100-110c. If you get no errors, and those are the temps you hit I would call it a success.
    Keep your words soft and sweet, in case you have to eat them.

    Temps look good to me. I would be happy with them as they are. The fact that it can now throttle down means that it will occur less usage, but still be able to ramp up when needed. Perfect.

    Off subject,................one of the things we do around here is ask that our members post their system specs in their user control panel. They'll show up under your avatar and we can refer to them when you have questions for the forum.
    Thanks for complying.
