q9000 running 8.5x instead of rated 7.5x?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
as the title says lol, it makes no sense how its running a higher multiplier than what Intel rates. intel processor identification utility has same results

not complaining just confused
post #2 of 16
that is running at q9100 speeds. perhaps you just got an engineering sample with a higher multiplier. I don't own one of these chips yet (just ordered an q9100) but I'm pretty sure the multi is locked?? if not I'd like to get my q9100 to q9300 speeds biggrin.gif

its suppose to be locked. ive been having issues with BSOD in windows, all other the place, so random that theres no way to trace it
happen to turn off power savings, where cpu is 100% speed all time, and its running 2.26ghz, i was like ***, but its bouncing back and forth from 7.5 to 8.5
no bsod after stopping speed step

no idea, I'm no expert on these mobile quads. I have a p8400 duo right now. kinda sucks they are locked. I want the qx9300 but that thing is still way pricey. over $200.... worse case scenario you could pick up a q9100 for $100

My T9600 runs a half multi higher than it's suppose to but it is an engineering sample chip. I do believe intel was beginning to work on a type of turbo boost with the mobile c2d and c2q at one point but it never made it to fruition until nehalem. You buy the chip off ebay?

it is a ebay chip but its a OEM from a alienware, not a engineering sample
(last mobile ES i bought was to unstable to run so i chose to avoid it this time)

here is the chip I'm looking at currently. best price I have found. do you think this is risky? might be an ES?
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Intel-Core-2-Quad-Mobile-Q9100-2-23GHz-1066FSB-QGMU-CPU-/330833949020?_trksid=p5197.m1992&_trkparms=aid%3D111000%26algo%3DREC.CURRENT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D14%26meid%3D5800992549748399323%26pid%3D100015%26prg%3D1006%26rk%3D1%26sd%3D330833949020%26

Description:
QGMU is Q9100 Qualification Sample = ES Final = Very Stable just like OEM
QGMU is better than QAVK
please notice few laptop support Q9100, so please 100% make sure your laptop could upgrade to Q9100
If your Chipset is not GM45/PM45/GM47/PM47
And don't have a over 130Watt's A/C Adapter must not support

Any incompatible issue will charge 25% restock fees and buyers need well packing and send back!

sorry not trying to hijack your thread, its a "ES FINAL" bad??

it tells you like 100x its a ES lol, even wrote on the cpu lol.
ES cpus wont say the model on the cpu stamp, so if it was a regular it would say Q9100 at the top
that looks like the same listing as when i bought that unstable ES, so its up to you. the guy was fully understanding and returned it with full refund.

sounds a bit sketchy. maybe I'm better off shelling out the extra $20-$30 to get an authentic cpu...

mine was a "final" as well
only thing i will use a ES on is desktop since you can alter voltage and fsb easily
