Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Question (More Multiplier Trouble)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well first off, does anyone use Intel Desktop Control Center? :/

If I have Enhanced Speedstep disabled, my clock frequency goes back to 3.33GHz in CPU-Z. The option to change the multipliers are also grayed out in the intel control center.. My BIOS says 4.13GHz, but cpu z and control center say 3.33GHz, and no matter what stress tests I run.

I need speedstep to be disabled because I'm still having the issue of my multiplier initially displaying normally (31x133=4.13GHz) on CPU-Z's start up, but then after about 5 minutes or so it bumps back down to 3.6GHz (26 or so.)

Yes, I have ensured that my power settings in windows control center are set to performance, and the min and max are all set to 100%.

Disabling C1E does nothing for me either nor does disabling "CPU VR Current Limit Override" in my BIOS. I've tried setting "CPU Idle State" to High Performance, which is supposed to force the OS to use the maximum multiplier at all times. But still no avail....

Any other suggestions?

What temps are you getting at 4 GHz? If your temps get too high the TM Function kicks in and throttles down the CPU speed to avoid damaging it.

I know that the BIOS on Intel's motherboards are quite limited when compared to other brands, but can you overclock with it instead of the Intel Desktop Control Center? software OCing isn't as reliable as BIOS OCing usually.
