bus speed, multiplier automatically lowered for some reason

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I've been posting around today quite a bit. I finally got my GA-P35C-DS3R to work, and Vista installed with 800Mhz 4GB of ram.

Now I run CPUZ, and I get RAM running at 400Mhz, my CPU has a 6x multiplier. The default from Intel is 10. What's going here?

Turn off Intel Speedstep Technology and C1E on your Bios CPU setup page and it will stop doing that. It is designed to save you power and put out less heat when your CPU is in idle.

Edit: The ram speed is correct, DDR (Double Data Rate) is 400 X 2 = 800mhz

How do I disable SpeedStep, it doesn't show up on the Setup page. I disabled C1E.

And I upped the Bus speed to 266, but the clock is still goes down to 1.6Ghz.

This is the Vista score:

However, knitelife you are right, I was wrong about the memory. The mem is fine, though I have overclocked it.

I'm doing this all on Stock components. It seems fine to pull from 2.0 to 2.6Ghz by increasing the FSB, and slightly increasing the mem speed as well.

I guess prime95 will tell the stability.

On my board, if you set the mulitplier to a specific setting, Speed Step dissappears. Did you double check that you have specifically set the multiplier to the max multi for your CPU?
