    Running it at 2.7ghz full time is fine. Temps remain the same. Notice your idle hasn't come up?

    When you are running Wprime are you running CPU-z Side by side? It looks like your scores are too high. Meaning, the 2.7 isn't holding and dropping back to 2.5.​

    You don't need the PLL pin mod for a 2.8 and what's more, there isn't enough headroom voltage wise to go over 4ghz and remain stable. The X9000 runs stable at 3.6ghz which requires about 1.35 volts. The PLL mod will do 3.6ghz with the T9300 probably at the same voltage (1.35). However, since you are o/c the FSB and not just the multiplier like on the X9000, the RAM will also be running a little faster. Which would make the PLL mod a tiny bit faster than the X9000 using ThrottleStop.

    That's my story and I'm sticking to it. ;)

    Hmm is there anything I can do to keep it at 2.7?

    Thank you. Wow if I could get 3.4ghz using this without damaging the HDX that would be amazing! And without having to buy an X9000! Now if I can figure out what this all exactly means.

    If it's safe to have it run at 3.6GHZ? If so could you pretty please do a step by step for how to do the Pin Mod as well? I thought that overclocking the fsb could lead to burning out USB ports or something else if I recall? If it could risk burning or ruining anything I wouldn't want to try it, in that case I'd love to be able to just keep it consistently at 2.7GHZ.. though 3.4.. with a 9300... Getting basically $400-$500 of performance without having to pay extra for it via a new CPU would be utterly amazing! A tiny bit faster than an X9000? Lol this is insane news man.

    It's not going to be easy. I'm working on it now. Biggest hurdle is modding the RAM BIOS to CAS 6 for 444mhz operation.

    Yeah, there is. But you would have to backtrack what you did. As long as EIST is not checked and DualIDA is set to 1 in the config file, and you made a shortcut to throttlestop and put it in your startup foldder on the startmenu, simply log off/log on.

    It's all a software issue though right.. it's not about ACTUALLY cutting wires is it?

    1 part hardware mod, 1 part RAM EEPROM mod.

    Hardware part requires modifying the path of pin 57 of the PLL to ground. That part I can do without issue. It's flashing the RAM to operate at CAS6 so that it can run @ 444mhz. At CAS5, which is default, it runs at 333mhz. That won't do. System will crash.

    The process of figuring it out seems very worth looking into, but personally I don't know that I really want to physically mod my HDX to the point where an HP rep could see..also the prospects of opening it up still scares me. In the meantime, do you know if I can do anything to keep the clock at 2.7? It says 2.694.. like right by 2.7. How does one get that it's going back down to 2.5?
