Re: CPU multiplier issues
Well the CPU is fully functional I think, I'm guessing it's some sort of thermal throttling type of feature in the OS or BIOS, but I have no idea how to identify which one, or if that's even the issue.
Further more, as I said, every once and a while, the multiplier, in CPU-Z, flickers up to x8 and shows the correct clock, then down again. I've noticed very similar behavior in my C2D laptop, except during heavy load, it kicks into it's complete 2ghz. I just don't know how to remove this issue on my desktop, and it's annoying me.
BTW, for the clocks and voltages, I'm going by CPU-Z. I'm using the P35 PRO, and haven't changed any BIOS or updated them. If I had to, where would I and how would I do this?
EDIT: This CPU does the exact same thing, when a games running, it kicks itself into 3.2ghz (the desired speed). How do I change the settings so that it's ALWAYS on this speed, so that it's not underclocked unless I manually change it?
