Core i7 920 Multiplier Stuck at 12 - Page 2

post #11 of 19
i have the c6/c7 halt state enabled and my 920 multiplier reaches x21 on load... i think u need to check the bios more, look for the turbo boost and enable it also change the cpu multiplier to 21 manually and see hopefully it works

Could this possibly be caused by a bad cpu or motherboard?

Between the two, I would say mobo is bad because the CPU can go up to 21x, only under load. Can you manually set it at 21? Or even if you do it goes back to 12x?

No matter what I manually set the multiplier for, it still stays stuck on 12.

It looks like the culprit is the motherboard. I swapped my chip out into a friend's pc and I wasn't restricted to a 12 multiplier.

In case anyone else comes across this thread with the same problem, I figured I would post up a follow up. I contacted EVGA, and they instructed me to send the board in. It looks like I got a faulty board, so I'll post up when I get a chance to try everything out again.

I had the exact same problem, apparently the glitch comes from win 7 power plans page, once you choose "show additional plans" and choose high performance plan, it will switch back automatically to power saving plan. I kept re-choosing "high performance" and close the window until it was stuck on high performance plan. I hope that works out for you

PROBLEM: There are Intel i7 low CPU marks that some newbies might not be aware of causing freakouts. i7's have a technology called Enhanced Intel Speedstep (EIST) And due to some glitch in certain MBs your CPU will only power 1/2 by FREEZING the Base Clock multiplier in half of the CPU. No matter what you do the multiplier will be frozen and if you run Passmark's performance test you will get extremely poor CPU benchmarks. If you install CPUz and juice it with PRIME95 it will stay frozen and most will think they have a faulty MB! NOT TRUE - read on!

SOLUTION: My build is 2 computers Identical with a Gigabyte X-58 USB3 F5c (latest Beta Bios) - (note: Gigabyte swears by their betas and by policy never change them unless they fail according to their tech) i7 980x extreme cpu. BCLK is 133Mhz and was stuck on 12 multiplier on both computers.
The solution - that is extremely hard to find - on Geek forum boards and came from trial and error is to go into your BIOS in these steps:

1: MB INTELLIGENT TWEAKER (MIT)
2: ADVANCED FREQ SETTINGS
3: ADVANCED CPU CORE FREQ.
a: Enable Intel Turbo Boost technology
b: Disable C1E (power saving feature)
c: Disable C3/C6/C7 (power saving feature)
d: Disable CPU Thermal Monitor ( THIS IS THE GLITCH in GIGABYTE MBs)
e: Enable EIST (Enhanced Intel Speedstep)
4: GO to ADVANCED MEMORY SETTINGS
a: turn off TURBO ( NOTE: allow your Intel chip to adjust turbo - not MB)


NOW the final solution that most Custom builders don't do! TURN OFF COMPUTER AND PULL OUT PLUG (to make sure there are now random electrons with code glictching you) to make sure you have a CLEAN BOOT!

Then put windows in Balanced power allowing your processor to fluctuate.

When you turn on you will see the marvelous technology of EIST !!! Open CPUz and you will see it throttle down to low multipliers and throttle up to max TURBO MODE under stress !!! Base clock stays same and no overclocking needed! Run your WINDOWS IN BALANCE POWER EVEN and you will have a LONG LIFE CHIP. No bottlenecking in games with your GPU !!!

RUN PASSMARK AGAIN AND BLOW AWAY YOUR COMPETITION !
