    any ideas on how to fix this? I am running an intel core 2 duo 3.16 ghz on a DFI DK P35 mobo. cpu-z and the bios both say that the specification is 3.16 ghz but the core clock is only at 2.0 ghz.

    thanks


    also, it seems that my FSB is running incredibly slowly

    and what the deal with my memory, I have DDR2 800 pc 8500, but cpu-z shows this for both sticks:

    go into your bios and change your multiplier to 9 right now its at 6

    333 X 6= 1998

    333 X 9= 2997 Where you want to be

    What motherboard do you have?? The ram will have to be set also at the higher speed

    Detale, it's not the multiplier he needs to change it's the EIST/C1E he needs to disable.
    It's Intel's technology that lowers the CPU multiplier automatically when it is under 20% of usage.
    Like I sayd, just disable the EIST or C1E and it's should be fine.

    Or leave it as it is and enjoy cooler temps and lower power usage.

    AmpeD, to test just put a load on your cpu and watch the core clock increase to what it should be, until you take the load off.

    Exactly what I thought when I first saw this.

    Effectively the same as AMD's Cool'n'Quiet technology.

    Just leave it as is unless you want to use more power and have you PC running harder than it has to when it is unnecessary. Your clock speed should jump up to 3ghz when it is needed.

    Can't argue with the "lower power useage" part but I saw absolutely no difference temp-wise with the processor at 2GHz or 4GHz (stock is 3GHz).
    The 45nm Intels run at such low voltage (especially compared to older AMD stalwarts) that heat is almost a non-issue these days.

    I do with mine, about 3 degrees.
    Makes no difference when there's a load though (obviously).

    My watercooling tends to damp out minor temp spikes I think.

    Maybe but you can see why I would think so the wolfdale should be set at a multiplier of 9
    This is mine


    His says 6
