Hi all! Ok, so here's my problem. I have an AMD Phenom II x2 550 overclocked to 3.4Ghz. Currently I have cool 'n quiet enabled in the BIOS. Now, CNQ operates in steppings, and here is my output data from cpufrequtils:

                  within this range.

Now, the problem lies in that the steppings go 3.40 GHz, 2.40 GHz, 1.90 GHz, 800 MHz BUT the cap on speed is 3.10 GHz. This means the processor will never go beyond the 2.4Ghz stepping as you can see.

Can anyone tell me how to override the preset policy on speed steppings to allow the overclocked range to be open? Thanks in advance!
