I HAVE gotten it to pass it at times. But as soon as I mess with something else in BIOS, it goes back to stock and its stuck there. Not even sure what I'm doing wrong honestly.
And if I DO end up getting it to stay at 46 or 47x (or higher), it for some odd reason, goes down to 44 or 45 under load.
It sounds like you've got a few issues here. Like I said, I'm not really familiar with your motherboard, but dropping your multiplier under load sounds like throttling or a known issue with some mobos where EIST gets wonky.
I'd personally try disabling all power management settings in your BIOS, changing your power profile in windows to high performance, disabling any sleep features (if you need them, you can re-enable them later) and making sure if there's a phase control (svid/apm) that it's disabled.
Wouldn't be a bad idea to put up a thread in the Intel mobo section too. I'm sure there are others with some experience using your brand of motherboard.
I just saw your thread, my bad! Edited by HAF_wit - 3/11/11 at 10:59am
