Problem with Phenom 8600 (Toliman)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi guys i'm new on this forum, first I apologize for my bad English, I hope you understand.
The problem is basically with the multiplier, normally it works at 11.5, but when i open a heavy process like some games, the multipliers goes crazy between 5-11.5.
i'll be very grateful receiving your help.

List of things i do:
Disable Cool'n'quiet (on bios)
Update bios and disable cool'n'quiet again
Clear cmos

Depending on the OS you have, you could bypass completely the BIOS setting for C'nQ like this: open control panel, power options and set either "High Performance" in Vista/7 or "Home Desktop" in XP. This way the CPU will always be kept at max multiplier.

Disabling CnQ in the BIOS may not matter since Win can override the BIOS setting.

thanks for the reply! thus by testing the configuration of power continues to drop the multiplier to x5, I am perplexed.
