I'm having issues with an over clock I've had for awhile. When I boot everything seems fine, the prompt that comes up on system startup lists my cpu as 3.4 GHZ (2.83). Meaning I'm over clocking to 3.4.
However, when I get into Windows 7, Nothing else shows 3.4 (I've tried with windows props, cpu-z, etc.). Everything shows the standard speed of 2.83. My proc is a bit hot, idling around 40c, peaking at 70c, but I don't think this would be enough for the proc to be under clocking itself.
What I have tried: - Looked in bios for something to disable that could be under-clocking my cpu like speed step. Haven't found anything... - Looked in Windows Power settings and made sure it was set for performance mode (made sure that min/max settings for cpu were at 100%) - Tried to install AI Suite (maybe I need this program or something?, dont see why I would), However this program doesn't work with windows 7.
An Aside: On Idle, my cpu temp registers 39-40C, but my cores register: 50,43,48,52, should their be this drastic of a difference between the core temps and the cpu temp?

You have to disable both C1E and EIST in order to turn off speed-step.
I have disabled C1E, but have not found EIST in the bios. Where can this option be located?
