post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok, Take It Easy On My Guys, New Here And New To Computer Building... My Question Is, I Bought A E6700 C2d On Ebay Last
Week, The Owner Told Me That Is Unlocked.. So I Got That Part,
But In My Bios, In The Box That You Can Change The Multi. Plyer
Mine Shows 6 To 60... Is That Common, And If Not, I Tryed To Use
11,12,13,14 Multiplyers None Of Them Work, All The Lower Numbers
Work Fine.. Could Someone Explain To Me Why Not Higher Numbers
Dont Work. Thanks.. And I Can Only Go To 3.24 Ghz. On Air...why??

Hi, and welcome to the forum

The multiplier of the E6700 is only downward unlocked. Thus, you can use a lower multiplier, but not a higher one.

The default multiplier of the E6700 is x10. And yes, the BIOS will likely show all multipliers the motherboard can handle (and not those the CPU can handle).

You can likely use 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10, but not any higher.

only if you have an Engineering Sample (ES) do you have a CHANCE that the multi is unlocked. However, I dare guess you have a regular CPU (ES are recognizable by either no text at all on the CPU or the text 'Intel Confidential')

However, with a decent stepping E6700 you should be getting higher than you get now.

Could you go here and please fill out your system specs? Then we can determine if anything else might hold you down (mobo/RAM?).

Good luck.

Put your RAM on T2. That is likely holding you back. Running RAM on T1 with DDR2 isn't that easy, esp. at higher speeds.

What is the RAM speed you're using?

MoBo looks hot to me also. Everything else is fine. The CPU can handle up to 60C easily, so no worries about that.

I'd put the RAM frequency down a bit in the Bios. That probably will get you a bit higher with the CPU clock.
