I did, but I tried with hyperthreading off and it didn't help me, so I turned it back on.

I'm a numbskull I guess. I installed the XTU but the only manul adjustment available is multiplier.

Tommy, I've been up and down with and without HT and it doesn't seem to help nor hinder. I've now tried it but maybe running just 1 or 2 cores may help.

Gary, for me with a MSI Board I have to set enable OC in OS in the BIOS, and then (with XTU) I can see multipliers and turbo voltage. I can set different setting in the multipliers( and view clock speeds with blck etc) but it does not work when I hit apply. With MSI, only their software will change the multipliers, but the voltage from the XTU does work.

How do you set it for just one or two cores? I heard doing that can produce a higher oc, but I don't know how to do that.


Edit: I just looked in the Bios, it is enable cpu multiplier in os, then XTU works

Mine seems to hang when I induce more then 5ghz so when I turn it off it stops and I am able to validate

I guess it's one of those oddities

Doug, I don't have "enable OC" in BIOS, it's Auto, XMP, to Manual and I use Manual. ASUS, at least, has an option for how many cored to be active in their BIOS. The Turbo EVO comes with all ASUS boards as far as I know, and I've used several of them the past few weeks, it does work well.

I'm going to try a Sabertooth Z87 soon....

Nice, I did find the BIOS setting for setting the number of cores, but the MSI software does still seem limited compared to ASUS. Tommy should be posting a big OC any minute now

Hey now guys...

No cheating turning HT and cores off...

I could very easily do that myself, but who wants to be "that guy?" I got my 6 core/12 thread CPU for a reason. (To use it.)

Maybe we should base the leaderboard on clock rate threads...
