BIOS settings and CPU-Z

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi All,

I was wondering if someone could help. I recently put together an Intel Core 2 Quad system with an aBit main board and Corsair XMS2 memory. Whilst the system is fairly quick, I am not convinced that it is as quick as it should be.

I benchmarked the system using PC Mark, 3D Mark and a couple of other benchmarks and I had a good look at the settings reported by CPU-Z. Coupled with looking at the BIOS settings, I am not sure whether the stock settings are even correct. Can anyone give them a quick look over and tell me if they are right?

Kind regards,

Andrew.

Note your multiplier... you still have the energy saving effects enabled in the BIOS.
That is why you see both a 6x then a 9x... 6x in CPU-Z and 9x in the BIOS.

One of the settings is ..

Ah thanks. That makes mucho sense because I have seen the 6.0x and 9.0x fluctuate in CPU-Z when I start and stop applications. I'll check that out. Thanks.

What about the memory settings? The memory says it will do 4-4-4-12 and I don't think the BIOS picks that up correctly when set to auto?
