Multiplier keeps changing!!  

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I am having a problem that I believe deals w/ my new motherboard. I think there is a setting on my motherboard that is changing my CPU Multiplier from between 9x and 6x depending on the application I am using. I know this isnt a huge deal, but I find it really annoying. The problem is I can not find the setting on the motherboard for the life of me. Does anyone have any idea what the setting might be called, or what is causing the multiplier to change?

C1E I think..
Could also be called EIST (Enhanced SpeedStep)

If you can't disable C1E in the bios you can run a utility that disables it. On my Intel 975XBX2 there's a known "feature" where you can go into maintenance mode and disable C1E, but it doesn't REALLY disable it. So in order to get around this "feature" I use RightMark CPU Clock Utility. It stays in memory, but provides a nice screen to have on my second monitor where I can watch CPU usage and temps.

You should be able to google for it's download location.

Do what these guys have recommended: Disable Intel SpeedStep Technology, otherwise known as C1E or EIST. If that does not work out as intended, then download a constant CPU Monitor Program and see when the irregularities in multiplier occur.

EIST is a technology which causes the processor to throtle full power or low power to save voltage and life, depending on what type of application you're running. Most likely running games you'd go to a 9Multi and on Word or other stuff a 6Multi. Do what we've told you, and tell us what I asked of you (when the irregularities occur)

Good luck and Godspeed.

I don\\'t see why people hate that setting. It\\'s meant to save power. If you need more CPU power it will automatically increase the multi.

Big Papi (referring to your system! )

We hate it because it's not the way we mean our systems to stay, in other words, idle and raise power back as forth and necessary. By all means, overclocking a C2D Processor seems to me unnecessary (they are, by all means, power beasts). Like I like to think about voltage and multipliers, if I want them to change I'll do it myself. Don't need no stinkin' AUTO BIOS Settings to do it for me. I am sure many agree with me.

It was C1E. Thanks a lot for your help. It would have taken me a while to find on my own.

My thinking is along the lines of Shehanigan. If I wanted my multiplier to change, I would do it myself. Plus, isnt there some delay when the motherboard has to change its multiplier?

I don't know about the delay, but it seems a plausible theory as it would stay on a "hang-up". I'm glad you got this fixed and ready, so let's get the party overclocked alredy!

No, seriously, I'm glad we could help. Holla' at us anytime, bro.

You don't need to disable that... it's impossible to even notice without looking for it and it saves power.

Fishie has a point that should be taken into account. It's your PC, but well: it does save some power. Take into consideration that or having your PC act your way. But in the end, regardless of what you do, be happy!
