Problems with a cheap motherboard...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi I'm stupid. I bought this cheapo motherboard to build a friends PC.
I knew it was a cheap, but, I thought it would at least run the processor at it's STOCK speed.

The problem I'm having is:
For some reason the processor continually fluctuates in speed from 2194MHz to 1197MHz. I have disabled speed step in the BIOS. I don't know what could be causing it.
(FYI This is an E2200 processor with a stock speed of 2.2GHz)

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks a bunch man, I'll try that when I get home. Rep+

Having only built a my own personal rigs, where I've only used high quality boards I never seen these power saving features. Seems like a waste of time to me.

But, I guess in an enterprise environment where you could possibly have hundreds of host machines on 24 hours a day power consumption could be an issue.

All boards now should have those features somewhere in the BIOS so it's odd that you haven't found them until now, especially since they are enabled by default on many of them.

Oh well.

That should do the trick anyway.
