CPU Underclocking

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Just got a new MSI board and my E2160 is underclocking to 1.2Ghz with a 6x multi. I've got speedstep disabled is there anything else that could make it underclock?

I suspect there is still some type of thermal management in the BIOS that needs to be disabled but I'm not familiar with the board so I couldn't tell you where to look.

look for CPU C1E in your bios...that has to be disabled as well. That was the culprit when I had the same problem.

I've looked everywhere in the bios, CPU C1E isn't there. Is there anything else it could come under? as the manual is very vague about everything in the bios.

Some of those MSI boards have a hidden function key or something like that for turning off C1E. Google it and you will probably find it. Otherwise, reading your manual might turn up the answer.

Edit I just googled that board and found that it is one of those bastardized chipsets for running every cpu including the kitchen sink. It is not meant for overclocking and has integrated video. I would not be surprised if you can't turn off C1E.

try looking for intel TM2 also...

best thing to do is find a link where someone else oc your board so you can see the settings

you have to find what c1e is called on your board so you can turn it off

I've been googling this for ages and very few people seem to have this board (not a surprise), and those that do have it have no mention of underclocking. Its like trying to find a squid in the desert.

I've just found something a bit odd, I managed to overclock my E2160 to 3Ghz (1333FSB) and its stopped underclocking. Maybe MSI boards won't underclock 1333 processors as it was underclocking between 800-->1333
