Hi W.O.T.,


Here's what you have to do to make it work. First, download the latest nVidia video driver for your 8800's (ver 191.07). The chipset on your mobo is nVidia as are your video cards. Once you install the latest video driver, it will automatically create the NVIDIA Control Panel which allows you to adjust monitor resolutions, sli, etc. Also download the NVIDIA System Tool Version 6.05---its about 85.4mbs. Install this program. The system tool software contains a program called the Performance Tool and it will integrate itself into the NVIDIA Control Panel. Open the control panel and you will see the menu selection for the performance tool. Click on it and it'll ask you to agree to not hold nvidia accountable, etc, etc. Agree and the performance feature will be available.

When you open the Control Panel you will have four selections (CPU, Motherboard, Memory and Video Card). Click on the CPU section at the top and you will find several adjustments for the cpu, to include dropdown selections for the four cores. Select the appropriate multiplier for each core (they should all be the same multiplier value). One thing to note here is you must set the highest multiplier level you want to use in the bios first---otherwise, the core settings in the Performance Tool only permit what was set in the bios (for example, if you set 16x in the bios, then up to 16x will be available in the performance tool---17x, 17.5x, 18x, 18.5x, etc). Click apply and it will adjust your cpu clock speeds. CPU-Z and all of the other measuring tools will now recognize all four cores and will give you the correct clock speeds.

Thanks again guys for all your help I really appreciate it. I just can't figure this one out.

I did this few times now. For some reason I do not get an option to change the multi. It is locked at what ever I have it set to in the BIOS. I attached a pic of what I get. I noticed this the other day but no matter what I can't get that option anywhere.

I know this is what is keeping me out of using the 4 cores in all the apps I run on it. It runs games that have quite steep requirments and some 3rd party apps show the speed but it won't validate on Everest or CPUZ, or benchmark properly.

What do do you think is the reason why I am not seeing the mulit for the cores in the control panel?

W.O.T., according to this manual that covers version 6.05 there should be a section under "Performance" called, Dynamic BIOS Access. From there you can select "Chipset Features I" from the Available BIOS Pages: drop down box. Under "Performance - Frequency" the CPU Multiplier option is listed. Now WHY the Dynamic BIOS Page option is not showing up under "Performance" has me a bit confused. Hopefully BigJohn can weigh in on this one (or maybe someone else?)

Good luck

Don't know but I have no control over the multi in the control panel. I have even uninstalled and reinstalled about times thinking something was missing. But I have a feeling something is default shut off in the config file.

I did down load an AMD clock tool that states the speed now at 3990 which is what I have it set at in the BIOS.

Hi W.O.T.,

Sorry to hear that the software didn't work. After examining your Control Panel attachment, it appears that a key component of the Performance Tool software did not load during installation. I included a snapshot of my last Performance Tool/CPU page and as you will see, directly below the "HT Bus" slider, there is another line labled: CPU Core Multiplier as well as two boxes/dropdowns---one is called "core" which allows you to select each core (1-4) and the other has the available multiplier settings. In my case I had set a bios multiplier of 18x so multipliers 0 (zero) up to 18x were available.

You might uninstall and reinstall the Performance Tool 6.05 software---use Windows "add/remove" programs utility. When it asks if you want to remove all associated files, etc, say yes. This will not uninstall your NVIDIA video driver nor the Nvidia Control Panel, just the performance tool. Don't set up any profiles just yet. Go through the accept EUL agreement, etc, then check the CPU utility for the aforementioned CPU Core Multiplier line. If its there, then, select and set the multiplier for each core and hit "apply." You can then set up and save a profile.

I used this program on both Win-7 64bit and Win XP Pro 32bit and it loaded all of its components without problems. The only other thing I did in the bios was disable all of the power related features to include the fan thingy (QFan I think). I did find that the Performance Tool is hardware/firmware sensitive--it looks for the nvidia mobo sensors and determines the components you have attached to the mobo. You might also check that you are not running another overclocking tool---the mobo sensors only like to work with one program at a time. I'll check back to see if this helps or not. Good luck!!!

To think3r and N2Gaming: Glad you think the feedback was useful.

To think3r (& W.O.T.):

I just read your post #3952. This version of the performance tool was developed to work with nForce mobos series 6XX & 7XX. It works with most nvidia video cards. It also works with the M2N32-SLI (a 590sli mobo) but uses a limited feature set. You won't get all of the utility features such as the full blown "dynamic bios" feature, nor can you adjust voltages with our mobo. With that said, the CPU Core Multiplier Tool is activated (and should be available) for the M2N32 mobo. Again, see my attachment. Regards.

I can't figure this out.

I have reinstalled this about 6 times this afternoon and it will not show up. What build of 6.05 are you guys using. The only on e I can findis 6.05.13.05

I can not for life of me get the Dynamic Bios feature to show up. I took out the video drivers, reinstalled the system tools and nothing.

Don't know what I could be doing wrong but the software does not want to cooperate with me.

Is there somewhere I can get into the config file to get it to work?

Hi W.O.T.,

Again, sorry to hear that you still have a problem. Obviously something is causing your version of the 6.05 Performance Tool to not fully install. The only difference that I see between your system and mine is you have 2 x 8800-SLI video cards and use three (3) gbytes of ram---I had four (4) gbytes ram--each slot populated with one (1) gbyte. Your 8800s are the next generation vids but that should not be a problem because the performance tool was designed to work with them too.


Just to make sure that we have exact supporting software underneath all of this, the hardware/drivers I mention here worked with the 6.05 program. I am suggesting this in case maybe I had something running that you don't.

- Bios: Ver 2208 or 2209

- Win-7 RC Ultimate 64bit: NVIDIA nForce Chipset Ver 15.35 (Unique to Win-7)

- Win XP Pro 32bit (SP3): Nvidia nForce Chipset Ver 15.25 and 15.46

- Sound Driver SOUNDMAX xxxx6110 (32 & 64bit) - (Onboard audio chip)

- Video Cards in SLI: 2 x EVGA 7900 GT KO.

Don't know if your driver suite/software is different or not but the above versions worked with the Performance Tool. It didn't matter if the OS was Win-7 or XP Pro. I can't think of any unusual settings that I had in the Bios. I also use Norton 360 anti-virus and have its firewall activated, but had no problems. I did turn off XP Pro's firewall, however. I didn't do anything special with Win-7's security settings.

If you are using an anti-virus and/or a standalone firewall, you might turn them off temporarily and try and reinstall the 6.05. Sometimes the security software might block full installs of programs that modify protected components/firmware. Oh yes, my version is the same as yours, 6.05.13.05. Hope this helps!!!

Ooooh the frustration.

Now I am dealing with a failed unstall/install and I can't even get it to reload now.

I run the software and all I get is an error, either when I try to install it or remove it. I can't even get rid of it throught the registry.

Well just to verify that I am not crazy I installed the exact same software on the other system and it does the same thing. No multiplier support at all. It has the multi locked at 25 thought even thought it is set to 14 in the bios.

I think I am out of ideas on how to get it to make the multis usable outside the bios. The Nvidia software will not load on the system anymore and I can't take it off either. I don't know what happened but it is stuck in limbo now.

I don't even know if a reload of Windows will do anything.

As I see, you are using Windows 7. Do you have possibility to try XP or Vista? I'm not computer expert, but It's look like to me that some drivers for CPU or MB are missing?

My other system is running XP. Same video cards. It has a 5000+ BE dual core though.

Everything in the device manager is there with no conflicts or missing drivers. So I have no idea.
