Speedstep and Turbo on the loose when tuning into manual/x.m.p. profiles, what am I missing here?...

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I just noticed something about my replacement board (my first one's sata controller gave in)

I recently bought 16Gb 8-8-8-24 ram modules from G.skill and had some misunderstandings about the way to get them at those promised speeds here. During the fiddling with my BIOS, I decided to try out X.M.P. . My DRAM clocks were adjusted as I wanted them to be, all good and stuff...until I rebooted and noticed my temps had gone up a bit and they were not shifting like they always did ;D I ran cpu-z and noticed that my cpu is at its turbo ratio the whole time (3700Mhz right now). I can only guess that by turning off auto mode on this mobo, speedstep (which is enabled in bios) just totally vanished and the turbo never turns off either (even when I'm just staring at my desktop without running anything).

this occurs on both manual profiles and X.M.P. profiles.

Any ideas? thanks in advance smile.gif

NO I do not intent do bump again, but I noticed that there's no interest in this thread at all, maybe because of the subject, but it could also just be an impopular section from ocn... could any admin move this thread to a section where it would still fit and gain the answers (more or less, just answers are fine tongue.gif not only THE answer) I seek? thanks in advance

I repeat, this is no bump, it just seemed the best way to gain an admin's/mod's attention lol

I am having this exact issue. Bought 2x8GB 9-9-9-24 G. Skill RAM. Have an Asus P8Z77-v pro motherboard. Happens exactly as the OP said.

Was under the impression that to get the RAM to run at the expected speeds I simply enable the XMP profile in the bios. However, once this is done (speedstep still enabled in the bios), cpu clock runs at its turbo ratio permanently. This also happens if I don't use X.M.P and try to manually set the RAM frequency to DDR3-1600 MHz. Played around a bunch in the bios and couldn't figure it out.

Though it's been while, I've noticed that x.m.p. always locks your cpu at its turbo boost on multiple systems. I guess it's normal for x.m.p. tongue.gif. I haven't found any way to get speedstep working again, along with x.m.p. . I just run my rig at a soft 4Ghz the whole time, so i'm not bothered with it anymore. Still not sure why x.m.p. does not allow speedstep technology.
