CPU UnderClocked, I want Normal-Clocked.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey guys.
My CPU, memory and such are underclocked right now. I already read http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...g-windows.html . From this blog, I did went into my bios to disable things that prohibitted my clocking to increase. The clock speed did not change which probably means my bios was pre-set to underclocking. I am not trying to overclock just yet, but want to normal clock. I don't want to just go into my bios and change stuff if I don't know much about it. And I heart DFI motherboards are tricky to handle. Any of your feed backs are welcome. This system is under my system's description(My First Built System) and attached a picture for you guys.

Things I want:
  1. I want my Q6600 to run 2.40GHz.
  2. I want to set my memory(Dram Freq) complementary(not OC) to my new CPU speed.

***Simply, what I want is to set everything in my system to run in 2.4GHz without OC or forcing anything.***

It really doesn't matter, it will goto normal speed once you put some load onto it, but when it's idling it slows down to save power. You should've noticed that whenever you put load on the CPU.

What I did before to check if my CPU reach 2.40GHz was to examine CPU-Z while I was playing a game for example. But it seemed like my Core Speed was limited to 1866 MHz and Bus speed to 266.6 MHz. Can you tell me the procedure so I can check inside the bios if it was blocking my CPU speed?

The only reason it was slowing it down was because of the SpeedStep feature.

Other than that it's normal. The FSB and bus speeds are stock. And you really should overclock, having a good P35 mobo and a Tnuiq tower is almost an insult to stay at stock speeds.

So, your conclusion is that my CPU is runnin 2.40GHz already when neccessary without any obstacle, right? And I should overclock.

Yes, because if you start any CPU intensive task it will increase the multi back to 9x and you will be back to 2.4Ghz.

And what did I just say? You really should, you should be able to hit 3Ghz easily.

Is there a program that can test my CPU to run 2.40GHz with 9X multi? I am just little worried.

Your CPU's mutliplier and voltage will be lowered dynamically whenever the CPU isn't under load if the motherboard BIOS has EIST, and C1E enabled. When the CPU needs the extra power it will revert to the default speed.

Now I'm sure I don't have to hold your hand and provide a direct link to it, but Orthos is a program that will fully stress up to two CPU cores. Alternatively there is Prime95, both of which are available from the OCN downloads section.
