Got my first built Booted - CPU speeed ????

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So I booted to BIOS on my first build. This is a Q6600 on a 780i. In BIOS, the FSB is 1066, which is correct, but the multiplier is only 7. Should be 9, for 2400mhz. How come it's default setting is 7 (for 1866mhz).

Thanks.

Probably speedstep or power saving feature in bios . C1e, Eist Basically clocks down when cpu is at idle to save power or something. Open a program and watch it in cpuz or whatever . it should change

What smokinbonz said.. disable those powersave features and the chip will run at a normal speed all the time.

The guy said he was booted into the bios. EIST and C1E are not lowering the multiplier or voltage when it is sitting in the bios maint screen. That only happens once the OS is running.

So I would recommend resetting the bios to defaults if there is a function key to do that in the maint screen. If not, I would recommend clearing cmos with the jumper per the manuals instructions and then checking to see where you are.

I'm pretty sure that it affects the BIOS speeds as well, but you could be right. If he still doesn't get the proper speeds after modifying the C1E and EIST, then your suggestion might be the next step to follow, but I'm pretty sure by modifying those settings, everything should be alright.

Correct, It does not affect bios speed at all. Also, SpeedStep drops to a x6 multi and not x7.

To the poster, just set the muti manually to default in the CPU configuraton menu (in advanced features). I had the same thing happen with the last 780i build I did.

edit: I've even seen the 780i bios report a x9.5 multi before!

I guess i didnt really notice that. If its 7 can you change it to 9 or what it should be ? Ericeod seems to have you on the right path seeing he has direct experience with the chipsets
