Cpu-z

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello all. Time for me to ask more questions, to explore all of your knowledge bases, one new thread at a time.

Ok this time, my problem is CPU-Z. I've OC'd my E6600 to 2.6Ghz, yet CPU-Z shows it at about 1700, often jumping back up to 2600.

Also the FSB and Multiplier change now and again.

I've got the thingy set to OFF in the BIOS, the Speedstep Virtualization thing is it?

hmm.. anwyays, here's a screeny to show you what i mean, with some Everest to back things up.



What say ye?


Also, why when i searched CPU-Z did nothing show? Surely this isn't the first time this utility has been mentioned here?

You need to go into bios and disable speed stepping and C1E. And that should make the overclock Visible in CPu-z

I'm not sure but i had a similar problem.I finally found out it was Intel Sidestep technology slowing and speeding up my cpu from 266x7 on load and 266X6 when idle.

C1E = Ehh??

Thanks though, will go try it in a moment.

Sometimes it's just C1E or SpeedStep, sometimes, they BOTH have to be disable at the same time.

Personally, I wouldn't worry over this. This is the same power saving feature that laptops have. When you're idle, it'll declock. When you load something, it'll jump back to max clock.

I like that feature and have been using it for months without problems.

Done and dusted. Sorted. Well done. No more.

Where's the green colour.
