q6600 running at 1.6????

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
I have read about this in a post before but i can't seem to find it again.

I just got finished building my first computer http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/Pu...Number=7734251

Everything went awesome booted up first time and i installed vista home premium. got finished installing all my drivers and i checking my cpu with cpu-z and it said my cpu was running at 1.6 instead of the rated 2.4

I'm pretty sure i need to do something in the bios to fix this but i have forgot what it was.

mmm, first of all, welcome to ocn. as you a new, please add ur system specs in the user cp (up the top of this page) and then add system (on the left). you've probably got intel speedstep still enabled, which underclocks ur cpu to save power. it'll be in ur bios somewhere, just look in the manual.
tell us if you want to overclock too, thats why we're here

keep CPU-Z on and try and load your machine with prime95 or something and youll find that your speed goes upto 2.4... powersaving/speedstep settings from intel... you dont need to worry..

put a CPU-z screen shot up. I would like to see what multiplier it has. Although, i agree that it is speedstep and C1E.

yup at stock it is 266X6
post #10 of 25
It is keeping itself cooler/saving power when your computer is idleing so it lowers the multipler to x6 instead of x9. It happened to me when I just got my system and I was given a bug scare.

Hope I help.
