Clock/multiplier trouble - Q6600

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello, so basically I have a Q6600 which at default bios settings it sets the FSB at 266.7 MHz and the multipler at 9.0, but as soon as I save and exit the bios and check how things are going with RealTemp and/or Cpu-Z the multiplier only goes to 6.0. Now I did fix this by manually setting the multiplier to 6.0 and the FSB to 400Hz and things ran fine but it still irks me as to why the default settings will not work or do not show properly on Cpu-Z/Real Temp.

Is Speed Step on? AKA ESIT in your bios

There's stuff you have to disable in BIOS to prevent it from downclocking. C1E and speedstep I think...just woke up haha.

Be Careful setting your FSB so high it might overheat. I did a out of case build on my pc and when the FSB was at 300Hz it almost burnt me when I touched it.

fsb of 400 is pretty standard for the Q6600

Thanks for the super fast replies, will check the bios again and report back.

edit : I did not really find any such options, I have this GIGABYTE motherboard (dont know the exact type) with this intelligent tweaker system...its kinda weird, lots of options seem to be missing like setting the CPU : Ram ratios etc. Anyway does anyone have any other ideas, maybe I just missed the options but I did not seem to find them ... :/

Not to sound dumb or anything, but are you sure you're saving the changes in the BIOS? Press F10 and select "yes" or type "y" and hit enter.

Also, when you reboot your computer, does it power up normally or does it powerup, then shutdown or reset for a second then power up? If it does, that means the overclock failed and it reverted back to stock clocks, hence why the OC is disappearing.

Also, I run my Q6600 at 391FSB without any issues, so close to 400 isn't an issue.

I found and disabled the EIST settings but it still will not work ie it still jumps down to 6.0, I have the GIGABYTE g33m-s2.

Yes I am saving the changes lol, and the 400 fsb x 6.0 ''overclock'' does work fine but the issue is getting the multiplier run at 9.0 without droping down to 6.0, the default settings are multiplies at 9.0 and fsb @ 266, the computer resets normally.

edit : I was mistaken, it is not quite a stable 6.0 like before, now it jumps from anywhere from 6.5 to 8.0, is this normal ? These changes can only be observed via Real Temp though, CPU-z just shows 6.0 .
