EIST? Multiplier locked? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Thread Starter 
Well I've looked at a couple sites and they tell me that I can turn off this EIST. I needed to download new BIOS. Alright, done and done. Now what? Here is what it said I was to do.


1. Download and run the latest BIOS update for you motherboard. You can download related BIOS from MSI web site (www.msi.com.tw)
2. Ensure Enhanced Intel SpeedStep technology is enabled in your BIOS.
3. Ensure your OS has support for Enhanced Intel SpeedStep technology. For Windows* XP SP2 operating systems install Windows XP SP2* if you haven't already done so.
4. Finally Enhanced Intel SpeedStep technology must be turned on in the OS. Currently, for Windows* XP SP2 operating systems Enhanced Intel SpeedStep technology by default is off. To turn it on do the following:
- Under Control Panel - open Power Options
- Under the Power Schemes pull down menu
- To turn Enhanced Intel SpeedStep technology ON select, "Minimal Power Management," power scheme.
- To turn Enhanced Intel SpeedStep technology OFF select, "Always On," power scheme.


Done step one. Hmm. Now the rest is complicated. If someone could simplify it a little bit? Hoping step 2 was correct I completed step 3 quite easily. Step 4, I also completed. After I did this I did a quick reboot just to make sure, and check the CPU-Z. Still underclocked to 2.07 on a 2.4GhZ CPU. pllllleaaaasssseeeeee help!

Well, I found out whats going on. I downloaded the BIOS, put them on a floppy and did what was necessary. I followed the steps and booted with the floppy and everything, still no EIST. I just gave up to be honest. I've tried everything. I went into the BIOS and upped my Frequency to 130x18. So now Im at 2.4 anyways, and its actually 2 degrees cooler than before lol! No harm done, although it would have been nice. Thanks guys. If you ever see Roxter around here too, he's a good guy who helped me do alot of this over MSN. "Props" lol

I really wouldn't call it software. It's more like firmware since it's built directly into the hardware.
Intel's EIST is a set of intructions that are built into a CPU. The EIST we were talking about before is a piece of software that works in an operating system interface, not the EIST extension/instruction.

As to the thread starter, as I said in my original post your CPU does not have EIST built into it, which means that no matter what you do you can not use it to drop to a x14 multipler.
