Intel speedstep not really working?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi all!

So I've recently updated my Case and got some new fans. I also did a clean install of Windows 10. I think it looks rather sweet! thumb.gif



BUT my speedstep is being very weird...

These are my BIOS settings:
100 x Multiplier 42 @ 1.32V
Speedstep: Enabled
Mem clock: 2400Mhz Timings: 11,13,14,30,1

as soon as my CPU is showing 1% load on Core Temp my CPU jumps to 4.2Ghz. When I'm sat on my desktop doing nothing it's jumping all over the place from 2.4Mhz - 3.0Mhz - 4.2mhz.

Minimum Processor State in power settings was set to 100% which is why it wasn't working at all when I reinstalled the OS but now that I've set that to 0% it's doing this.

Any suggestions?
Thanks! thumb.gif

System Specs:
CPU: Intel i7 3930k @ 4.2Ghz
CPU Coolant: Corsair H100 with 2x Noctua NF-P12 PWM
RAM: Kingston 16GB (4x4GB DIMMS) 2400Mhz @ 11,13,14,30,1
MOBO: ASUS ROG Rampage 4 Formula
GPU: Gigabyte 980ti
SSD: 60GB OCZ 550MB Up 450MB Down
HDD: x2 Seagate Barracuda 2TB

Update your bios.

If that doesn't kill the bug, just ignore it. Its not a huge deal.

Have you tried force enabling all the power saving settings in the BIOS? (e.g Intel Speedstep technology, C1E, C3, C6/C7) Also are all required intel drivers insitalled?
