Default Re: Question about q6600 g0 oc help

That's more than likely the motherboard dropping the multiplier when the CPU isn't under a load. It drops the multi and and voltage to reduce power consumption. I can't remember what it's called in the bios though.....

If you put a load on your CPU (orthos, or some other stress testing program) and check it again I bet it will be up to the regular 2.4 Ghz.
