3770k Multiplier Dropping (Prime95) - Page 2

post #11 of 38
the eist setting will only allow the cpu to drop to 1600mhz at idle and voltage too so that wont affect why you are throttling

by the way my radiator is at the top of my case which has two 120mm fans (set up as pull) on top of it.

so just run prime95 for 30 minutes and post another screen shot. but first go into your bios and I am not sure with your board but if you have a turbo settings you will want to increase you cpu power limit on mine factory is 100% I change it to 140% when overclocking.

Ok I will post at 30 mins. Is it it safe to continue running when my mulitplier drops/ load % drops on core temp?

as long as you aren't hitting 100c on the cores it is prolly just a setting in your bios like I just said to check first and all will be solved but yes it would be safe to let it run while its throttling if it is because of a power limit setting

Speedstep was disabled. I cannot find an option under my BIOS for increasing cpu power limit

I have options like

Long Duration Power Limit (only option auto)
Long Duration Maintained (Seconds)

ok I will look at your mobo manual real quick and if you are on windows7 or win8 please use the snipping tool for your screen shots its installed on win7 and 8 from the factory you'll have it
