Maybe at the extreme levels, but the lower multiplier would surely balance out the effect of increased fsb at lower speeds.
    I am certainly hoping that is the case!

    As the CPU load ramps up it just increases the multiplier - maybe this occurs to quickly to be stable on a high overclock, but a medium one should be ok I'd have thought. (I'm also someone who wants to run with C&Q all the time).
    Well, a medium overclock is all I was really looking for, I don't really have the time to spend eeking every last Hz out of the machine.

    I am also fortunate that I was a tad tight when I bought this CPU, as it only has two power states (1.0GHz->1.8GHz) whereas the S754 A3700 I use as work seems to go 1.0->1.8->2.0->2.2->2.4 which might be a bit more of a 'mare to get stable.

    Off to try upping to 20% now

    My 3000+ runs 2Ghz at 1.1V so I don't bother with CnQ, my stupid Asus A8N-SLIs refuse to give less than 1.1V to my CPUs so CnQ would not help at all to cut power usage.

    DanceswithUnix - My motherboard (Gigabyte GA-K8N Ultra 9) allows overclocking with Cool & Quiet, provided only the FSB is adjusted. If I adjust any other settings like multiplier, voltages the C&Q stops working.

    Here is a link to an excellent article on how to overclock/underclock while using C&Q.

    Well, thanks to everyone for the information! The information in those links boosted my confidence in what the CPU can handle even at low voltage.

    I am now up to a 33% overclock, and so far so stable. I wrote a small shell script to display the current CPU frequency, and can watch it flip up and down whilst compiling etc and it all seems OK.

    Thats your problem there, switch out your stock cooler for something better, I'm running an X2 with a thermalright XP-120 heatsink and a 120mm akasa amber series fan on it. With Q-fan on it's running at ~700RPM and both cores at full load it doesn't get much faster or hotter.

    OK, I realise that there are better ways to get the heat away from my CPU, but I really don't want to create that heat in the first place!

    The PC is in a small room which, in summer, gets pretty warm even with the window open. Using CnQ cuts down the amount of heat generated, which keeps the room temperature down by a few degrees C.

    Still, 700rpm sounds nice, and I would feel safer with that than that big passive Scythe one I was eyeing up the other day. Perhaps I shall put one on my birthday list

    The scythe Ninja is a super cooler tbh... If you buy from Scan or Tekheads you will get the plus version which includes a very slow spinning 120mm fan I have one mounted on my Opteron 146 and it is keeping it nice n cool.

    I'm running my 3000+ at stock passive now. It gets up to 44'C at full load but there isn't a fan on it so I'm happy enough. Now if I could force my Asus board to provide a lower voltage (1.1V is not low enough). I need 0.95V.... I know my CPU can do it since I was running it like that on my old mobo...
