after overclocking my AMD Phenom 940 from 3.00 ghz to 3.30 ghz via bios, the cool 'n' quiet function doesn't seem to apply for all cores. CPU-Z just displays core #0 and yes, it goes down to 800 mhz on idle. But to verify I checked all core speeds with AMD Overdrive, there I can see that only core CPU0 and CPU1 are clocking down but CPU2 and CPU3 stay all the same. CPU0 and CPU1 are underclocking asynchronous, so core #0 is underclocking lower and more frquently than coer #1. I made something wrong I guess.
Have you spotted the issue yet? If you did i'd like to know how you did that
If you haven't fixed it, just go into the BIOS and load the default settings.....after that go on youtube and watch a tutorial on how to do it correctly.

I dis- and enabled the the C'N'Q for both multiplier settings to make sure it would change something. But due to AMD Overdrive CPU Status, the cool 'n' quit issue is still emerging. I can't remember that the C'N'Q underclocked all cores asynchronous before overclocking, but maybe I didn't see it closely enough. I don't really know if it's normal, but I think it was different before overclocking by BIOS.

Arclight wrote:I don't mean to come off as a pr*ck but putting a setting back on AUTO doesn't mean "Load setup defaults". If you haven't done this yet, please try to do it (It's usually found in the"Exit" tab of the bios) and report back if it changes anything @ your issue.
SRM wrote:Ok. I had to press F5 to "load setup defaults" and I safed. No change.mhmm.. Sorry for being a prick last time
