It is time for me to begin learning in-depth about overclocking in general. So I can apply it to CPU and GPU and possibly ram.
I know what over clocking is, and I can do it by adjusting the multiplier and then getting stability thru voltage.
But I would like to begin to dive deeper into it, as I have read several sources and they conflict with each other, some say to adjust cpu strap as well as multiplier and other sources say dont F with cpu strap as it messes with your mobo operations.
well how does it mess with mobo operations? why? dangers? advantages? ect. this is the type of knowledge i would like to get into.
You do not have to answer the above as of yet. I want to start simple.
Here is my platform, 3930k, sabertooth x79, gskill ripjawz z at 1600.
for my first question,
is the turbo boost on cpus locked?
I love the turbo boost idea, when i am just playing games, doing surfing or nothing, i let the processor float from 1200 to 3800. its normal turbo boost range.
when i work, i go in and adjust to my work profile at 4.2g. all cores synced and of course it stays at 4200, no fluctuations.
I would love to know if there is a way to adjust the turbo boost so my processor can float from 1200 to 4200. call me lazy but hey it saves time.
so that is my first question, much like gpu overclocking, where you allow the card to take more when it needs it.
Thanks for reading and sharing your knowledge.
Looking forward to a long conversation with you all.
