Please help with e6750 performing like my old Athlon

My e6750, which was just running normally, now gets 40s (should be 19) in Superpi 1M and 1037 (should be 2350-2400) in 3D Mark 06 CPU test. What could have happened to cause this?

If someone needs more information, ask away.

I know both cores are working.

Please, someone respond.

Bump, read first post.

Sorry for triple post...

I ran 3d Mark 06 with the graphics test, and the graphics card is performing poorly too. This has led me to believe there is a problem with the PSU. Is there any way to test the PSU to see if it is functioning properly?

(If it helps, CPU-Z reports a V-core of 1.3120 even under 100% load during superpi. The normal is 1.3500)

It's not the PSU. What is your processor and FSB clocked at?

PS - Boo on you for double bumping your post and not giving a meaningful thread title.

Changed the title, and the processor is running at 8x 2.66Ghz. FSB, thus, is 333.

When it did work properly, it ran 1M superpi at 26s when at 2.00 6x. This is almost as bad as the 3200+ in the computer I am on right now.

You've confirmed it is running at that using something like cpuz?

Also, check task manager, are there any processes using a large amount of CPU cycles?


PS - thanks for changing the title, you'll get more responses with a meaningful one

Yes. It has 6x when idle, but bumps up to 8x during use. This is way worse, as said above, than just having the processor running at 6x.

Not enough to make the impact I am seeing.

You're welcome. I realized that it might be counterproductive.

Thanks for your replies, Technology Coordinator, and especially for being skeptical about the PSU.

I fixed the problem by system restoring to earlier today, when it was working. Evidentially something I had installed between then and now caused the error. Restoring it removed this error, and now the system works properly.

Probably PSU going out. List your stats.

Does the 6750 only go up to 8xFSB? If so that sucks. The 2180 has a 10x multiplier and can be had for 100s less. The E2180 at 333 is 3.33 lol. Man the E2180 looks better to me everyday.

It works now.

About the processor, the stepping is better and the cache is bigger on the e6750.

Neither makes much real world difference except cache having a minor affect in really highend games.


Glad you got yours working though. Gotta love System Restore.

Yes, you do.

add more hard drives if your running vista

2xxx series also have 1/4 the cache, not to say you cant overclock this thing to get pretty close to the other at stock speeds.

I'm glad you were able to find out the issue. I had a feeling it would be software related.

Take care!

Damn it! And I thought this was the perfect oportunity to bash Intel for their inderior products! Imagine a 3200+ performing better than the 6750!!! Go AMD GO!!!
