sleep mode messing with multiplier?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've noticed something with my Sandy Bridge motherboard: When my computer goes into sleep mode, upon coming back out of it, the multiplier gets reset.

In one instance, my multiplier gets stuck at x16 and won't go higher (so I'm stuck at max 1600MHz). In another instance, my multiplier got stuck at 35x maximum.

I have all the power saving options disabled, and my voltage is set, and my multiplier is set (turbo boost is disabled). Real-time OS changes are disabled. Etc. etc.

Anyone else have this issue?

Right now my settings are 1.2v vcore @ 40x multiplier... it's not a big deal since with an SSD boot times are relatively quick... but it's a little annoying to see the clock speed go out of whack when I try to use the sleep feature

I presume that you have disabled SpeedStep?

Yeah all that sort of stuff is disabled.

It seems like the turbo boost is always enabled, whether or not the BIOS has it enabled or not. I've noticed that when I use certain programs, if I click "disable turbo boost", my multiplier goes down to 34x no matter what, and if I click "enabled turbo boost", it won't kick back up to what my OC was. Kinda weird behavior.

But in particular, I don't know why putting the computer to sleep would effect the multiplier.

The only reason I could really thing of is the power saving modes on Intel cpu's, just double check to be safe sorry I cant be much more of an assistance. Possibly you might need to do a motherboard flash and get the latest bios?
