Whooaaa, sorry guys, I've been neglecting this thread
. Hope I can give you some solutions:
DDDa- Using RMClock generagted VID values for intermediate states "should" be stable. The thing is, it's not worth it. The processor spends maybe 0.01% of it's life at intermediate states. However, I'll apply them in my RMClock and see what happens
mark123can and canusa- More successful undervolts! Glad it's working well for you guys, those are some great numbers
nephilim- For some reason, HLT commands replaces the "System Idle Process" as a process that occupies idle CPU time. The Windows System Idle Process works fine, so you dont need run HLT commands, I'd uncheck it.
Caboose101- An immediate crash in prime95 means that your CPU is VERY unstable. I think an everyday value of 1.116v should be great for your CPU. Most CPU's can do .700v at 800MHz, so that sounds good. The FID is the multiplier on which your CPU runs. The 9300 has the Intel 915 chipset which has an external clock of 133MHz. Your CPU runs off this clock. At idle, FID 6x, the CPU runs at 133MHz x 6, or 800MHz. At full load, the CPU will run at 133MHz x 15, or 2000MHz (2.0GHz). Lowering the FID will make your CPU run slower, which is a bad thing
. The performance level indicator I think governs how sticky the CPU is to a certain speed. At higher performance levels, I'd imagine it makes your CPU very likely to jump to full speed. At higher battery levels, I'd imagine it makes your CPU very sticky to 800MHz in order to save power and will only amp up to full speed when it really has to. Overall, there's not much difference between all of them since most of the time the CPU runs at very low usage (<10%) or full load (100%), so leave them on balanced. Finally, RMClock requests voltage in real-time, but I guess you could uncheck the "restore defaults upon exit" box and see if your temps stay low after you exit. Try it out!
futureaudio- Is this 735 pin-modded to 2.26GHz? Or is it running at 1.7GHz? I'm taking that NIB is new-in-box and that you put this CPU in yourself? Please give me more info and I'll see what I can do
1. If your 9300 locks up, simply hold the power button until it turns off, then press the power button again to turn your computer back on. As soon as RMClock exits, your CPU goes back to default. Just make sure that while you're testing you DONT select the "run automatically at startup" box and DO select the "restore CPU defaults on exit" box until you have found stable voltages
2. Nope, CPU and the video card are totally separate.
3. Yes, the 6800 can, but it involves BIOS editing and flashing, and really doesn't give any lower temps (just a little more battery life). I can help you with that, but it gets pretty damn complicated if you're new to computers.
4. GPU can easily be tested with 3DMark05, newer games (FEAR, Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, etc.).
5. The RMClock instructions on page 1 are for the older v.1.6 of RMClock. Here are the v.1.8 instructions: http://www.notebookforums.com/showpo...&postcount=976
Hope that helped guys, happy undervolting
