hm, keeps saying mine is running at 1.6 lol

*******@Jin-Ubuntu:~$ cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_cur_freq
1600000
*******@Jin-Ubuntu:~$


vendor_id : GenuineIntel
cpu family : 6
model : 42
model name : Genuine Intel(R) CPU 0 @ 3.10GHz
stepping : 5
cpu MHz : 1600.000
cache size : 6144 KB



conky also shows it at 1600, in my bios it shows 4.6. sigh.

Sure sounds like a bug between Intel, the mobos, and/or the kernel.

My i3 (1st gen) would show the correct OC until I hit around 4.4 then it would go haywire and show a much higher cpu speed.

The weird thing with my sig rig is that it would read the correct bclk oc as if it was on the stock multiplier but as soon as I added cpu scaling using cpufreq-utils it would show the stock speed. However when I checked what steps it was using it would show more than 1 at 3.33ghz.

i made a thread about this same thing a couple weeks ago.

dmesg | grep MSFT

the only utility that actually gets it right is "i7z" .. if you have an i7 chip.... it might be in your distros package repo, if not build it from http://code.google.com/p/i7z/

i've tried following how it says to install that a billion times, can never do it. I just dl the file, go to cd i7z or w/e it was and it does some stuff then I can't do any step after that.

well it sounds like you have no idea how to compile software ... smile.gif or problems reading wink.gif

if you can elaborate in detail on what you're typing, and what it says, we'll be happy to help you get it compiled.

You come off pretty rude there bro. I can read just fine. Second week using Linux. On a not everyday basis. I can get stuff going on it but following instructions exactly got me nowhere and just how you came off overly rude. I'm done here.

As I said before, it's a kernel issue that the driver developer refuses to fix.

This might be simple due to Linux cpu scaling, since Linux (or rather most distros) run its own frequency scaling daemon by default.

Example:
Code:
# Check current frequancy
[root@localhost ~] cat /proc/cpuinfo  |grep "cpu MHz" -m1
cpu MHz: 1600.000
# Stop process responsible for scaling (should be same for most distros)
[root@localhost ~] /etc/init.d/cpuspeed stop
Stopping cpuspeed (via systemctl):                         [  OK  ]
# Check again
[root@localhost ~] cat /proc/cpuinfo  |grep "cpu MHz" -m1
cpu MHz: 3068.000

Try it, and see if that shows the real speed. Hope that helps.
