What's going on?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I've got a 2600k, trying to push for 5.0 on air, but starting with a 4.5. I set my multi to 45, getting temps around 45C at my BIOS, and with core temp I'm at a 29 idle. After running starting up prime and checking cpu-z I noticed my cpu was clocked at a 3.4.

edit: Voltage is at a 1.35 currently.

I think Intel SpeedStep might have something to do with this. It allows programs to change your clock speeds. I don't know too much about it though, maybe somebody else will or perhaps you could look into it yourself on Google. Hope I helped!

Yeah I just rebooted and was looking at that, right now it's enabled. I'll try and disable it on reboot and tell you what I get.

Yep, that was it. Disabled EIST in BIOS and it's showing at 4.5 now. Thank you!

No problem, It's given me problems before too.

Just confirming what I think I might know... Doesn't speed step just drop down (to save energy), when you don't need the CPU speed for what you are doing?

Thx!

Tim

Correct, speedstep downclocks the CPU to save power. But watch that, because certain MBs have a turbo feature as well - mine boosts the multiplier by 1x when necessary.

Which can ruin your day if you're pushing the fence with your overclock ;-)
