Cannot disable Speed Step w/ GA-P35C-DS3R & e6750

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Just like the title says. The option to disable Speed Step (or what Gigabyte calls CPU EIST) is not present in my bios. I am using the most updated bios version F11e, and have disabled C1E, but Speed Step is still enabled. Yes I am looking at the advanced options using Ctrl+F1.

CPU-Z shows my current clock speed to be 333x6.0 in Vista 64, even though I have the multiplier set to 8 in the bios. So speed step is still enabled.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.


UPDATE: Fixed my own problem. So nevermind!

Speed step does no harm. It is not proven to change performance or stability when overclocking and all it does is save you some electricity.

Under Advanced should be ...

CPU enhanced halt (C1E)
Thermal Monitor
Virtual Tech

All of those disabled

EDIT:Virtualization Technology: Disabled (Enabled if you use Vmware or other virtual machine software supporting hardware virtualization)

Actually I use to have this problem. At times the option would actually dissapear. I use to return the BIOS to factory defualts and locate and disable speedstep first before anything else.
