    Exclamation Overclocking Question

    Hi,

    Just a quick question from a not so experienced person.

    It's probably just an idiots mistake but when i run ORTHOS, it says my multiplier is x11. From what i know this can't really be possible because i have a Q6600 so the multiplier can only go as high as 9.

    Is this a bug or is it supposed to be like that?

    Regards,

    TAKTAK,

    CPUz says that the multiplier is 9x.

    Re: Overclocking Question

    CPU-Z will be right then, just a glitch in Orthos. If it's set to 9x in the bios there's really no question, and as you say the Q6600 cannot have a higher multiplier.

    My guess would be it sees the stock FSB of 266Mhz for the Q6600 and the OC clockspeed of 3Ghz going by your 'My system'. If it has trouble for some reason sensing your real FSB speed it might 'guess' the multiplyer as 11x since that would get it closest to 3GHz (2.93Ghz to be exact).

    Is your version of Orthos fully up to date?

    Re: Overclocking Question

    Lanky123,

    Ok, yeah my Orthos was out of date.

    I downloaded the new version and it says 9x so i guess it was just a bug in the old version.

    Thanks for the help.
