I've got mine set up at 300x10=3GHz. Windows Experience Index is 5.8 - everything is 5.9 except gaming graphics (I'm waiting for the new driver from ATI). Cinebench 1 CPU is about 44s/508, 4 CPUs is 13s/1640.seanriddle wrote: It's interesting that task manager, CPUZ and device manager show *2* cores when core multiplexing is disabled.
I decided to test with core multiplexing disabled: WEI is exactly the same (probably only uses 1 core anyway). Cinebench 2 CPUs is 23s/946. So with core multiplexing disabled, there really are 2 cores running.
I tried all the Windows F8 options to make sure I wasn't missing anything. Nothing helped. Safe mode blue screens after loading the crcdisk.sys driver, but that's where a normal PC pauses anyway, so I think that driver is fine and it's crashing when it starts something up after that. Boot logging doesn't write the ntbtlog.txt file- I guess it crashes too soon.
Then I disabled everything in BIOS that could be. Unfortunately, I didn't leave any bootable devices, and I turned off USB (and my keyboard is USB wireless). So I had to switch the jumper to maintenance, which I've had to do several other times playing around with overclocking. So I wired a switch to the pins to make it easier. An SPDT center off would be best, but I didn't have one. You only need center off if you have to recover the BIOS, which I haven't needed to do yet. Switching to maintenance has always gotten me to POST, then I can reload my saved config.
I eventually disabled everything except the DVD drive and still got the BSOD booting the V64 disc. Then I disabled the DVD drive and turned SATA back on and it still crashed. I also tried unplugging the DVD drive.
I let Microsoft know the KB hotfix didn't work, and gave them some details.
