On Ubuntu I use CPUBurn - Just somnething simple enough to induce an eye-watering workload for the CPU to munch thru...
Anyway, I can't find anything for CnQ in my BIOS or in Windows. I also thought that windows and BIOS remain seperate, but rest assured this isn't the case with this board and CPU combo.
The FX-8120 CPU, it's 990FX Chipset and BIOS and the Radeon's 6950 can all be micro-modified to a very detailed level in AMD's own "Vision Engine CP". This driver suite replaced a long time ago what used to be called the Catalyst Control Centre (and even then it only delt with graphics). I can call up, modify and write back many CPU and memory BIOS values in there - It seems to manage everything.
At the moment though, things are unchanged - All my BIOS settings for the PC show correct Windows side - Except the clockpeed. It actually says:
CPU Frequency: 24 x 200 = 1400Mhz
CPU Bus: 200 Mhz
CPU Multiply: 24
CPU V-Core: 1.5650v
CPU Temperature: 27C
Something's interupting or overiding it, but I don't know where or what?
