i5 multiplier drops during stress testing  

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Testing my i5 at 4.5ghz and 1.35v, and about 20 minutes in it drops the multi to 42 (at least thats what cpu-z says), did it when I was testing 4.6 as well. What's causing this?

I think this is my 40th thread today...

lol I hope it's not 40 threads about this

Its dropping the multi because you more than likely have the power saving features on, EIST and C1E. Leave them on, it's a good thing, mine does the same when it's not on full load. It's perfectly normal.

Awesome, thanks man. This whole intel oc'ing thing is pretty new to me.

While we are on the subject (so I don't have to open another thread!) does 4.5 @ 1.35v sound pretty reasonable?

Your multi should not be dropping like that when your stress testing. How do you have your turbo settings set up?

lol forgot the thread title.


OP if it's dropping during load then you need to set the power limit.

Try that

->Short Duration power Limit [w]: 200
->Long Duration Power Limit [w]: 180
->Long Duration Power Limit [sec.]: 1


4.5ghz @ 1.35v sounds okay, quick look at my stable club and it seems that some have done 4.5ghz as low as 1.272v. I would try lowering it to around 1.3v. Actually try starting off from 1.272v and working your way up, use prime blend as a stability indicator.

Sorry about the confusion.

Ok, changed to 200, 180 and it was already at 1. Now if someone could explain exatly what I did there and what it means I would appreciate it.

i had a similar problem to this. I had all the energy saving features OFF and my multi would drop during folding. After lots of threads and troubleshooting i found the problem. It was the bios and I had to put like 3 bios updates back. This was on a evga x58 SLI. The multi should not be dropping while stressing even with all the energy bs off
