Cool & Quiet not disabling.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So i just got done putting a rig together for a friend. Used a FX-6100 and a Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 Motherboard. This is just an office machine so its not really a big deal, but when I try to disable Cool & Quiet it does't affect the CPU from getting down-clocked to 1.4GHz at Idle.

When I restart and go back into the bios it doesnt revert, it still says "disabled" but after booting into the windows the CPU still down-clocks at idle.

Also tried disabling Turbo, C1E, C6 Support, with no avail, and also when I try to stress it with Prime i never see any of the cores clock up, even with Turbo on.

Also I am on the latest Bios.

Anyone have any ideas how I can disable Cool & Quiet for real? Is there something I am missing? I dont really care about the turbo though.

There's another option you have to disable as well but I can't remember what it's called.

thanks man that really helped. I searched Google up and down but i guess I just wasn't phrasing it right. Installing overdrive and doing the #2 recommendation worked. Noticed if you have turbo enabled, it downclocks by default, but if you disable turbo it gives you consistent 3.3GHz clocks.

Seems that this is a Bios issue because disabling Turbo in bios does nothing. I heard some where the Gigabyte always has issues with Cool & Quiet, guess I should of remembered that before I suggested he buy this board.

I don't think anyone really buys Biostar unless using a really cheap board. Gigs are great for overclocking but there's like 2 things you have to disable in the bios to get the throttling to ****

Biostar has been good to me. This isnt a Biostar board, maybe you thought I meant that when I said Bios. =P

What are those two options, because I have tried everything related and other than this Temporary AMD Overdrive Fix, which doesnt stick after a reboot, nothing seems to make a difference it still by default returns to a state where it will downclock to 1.4Ghz, under load come back up to 3.3Ghz, and never boost or stay at a constant 3.3Ghz.

I was looking in your sig rig that says it lol.

anywho I don't remember what the 2nd option was, I'd need to look at my cousins system which he lives out of state which I visit like once a month so I guess next time I go out there I can look
