By default the option is set to "Auto". Other options are "PWM" and "Voltage". Apparently it couldn't figure out what my CPU fan was on Auto, so I set it to PWM since I have a PWM (4-pin) CPU fan. All is working now. If you have a 3-pin CPU fan, set the option to voltage.
Thank you onlycodered, That helped me fix the problem with my CPU header, I thought it was faulty. Now it is working. + rep...

I have CPU EIST enabled but my multiplier remains at x9 & OC at 3.3ghz regardless of whether I am under load or not.

I was under the impression that with it enabled I could expect it to drop at idle which is what I want.

Is there anything else I need to do to force this?

Not sure, but check out the CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E).

CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E)
Enables or disables Intel® CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E) function, a CPU power-saving function in
system halt state. When enabled, the CPU core frequency and voltage will be reduced during
system halt state to decrease power consumption. (Default: Enabled))

Thanks, but it is ALREADY enabled.

Hence my question...

Actually - just re-read yr post and you referred to C1E rather than EIST.

Looking at that now, but I'm not entirely sure what "system halt state" is?

No worries.

A quick Google search threw up this:

"C1E is only invoked if the CPU recieves the HLT signal. This is issued by the OS when there are no instructions to do (think of the idle process in the task manager issuing HLT). Once a Core 2 CPU recieves the HLT, it's clocking down multiplier 6x and a certain minimum VID (desktop 1.163 V, mobile 0.95 V). Once it recieves a non-HLT signal, multiplier and VID go up to standard levels.

EIST is controlled by a OS driver which instructs the CPU. The driver measures the CPU load, then it selects from several steps (up to 6 on my mobile cpu) which one to choose. The lowest EIST multiplier/VID matches exactly the ones of C1E. The other steps are choosen at medium load. EIST keeps the multiplier/VID as low as they are needed."

So it looks like I should enable both.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!

***Edit: Enabling both did the trick, if anyone is interested. Multiplier now sitting at x6.

No problem. I was a bit worried too when my CPU fan was was only spinning at 350 RPM.
