I'm in the process of trying to overclock my E6850, and in the process, i discovered that even at it's un-overclocked state, when it runs at full capacity for a demanding application it drops down from a multiplier of 9 to 6(effectively reducing speed from 3ghz to 2ghz). When i exit the application and idle it will go back to the 9 multiplier.

Why is it doing this? Is it possible that my CPU isn't getting enough voltage?(I haven't tinkered with my voltage settings from the default).

Thanks!

What are your temps under load? Its possible that your CPU is under-clocking itself when it reaches a dangerous temp.

it's very very normal, why..? your CPU loading not use 100%
this is under control : Enhanced Intel SpeedStep /Intel EIST is a power-saving feature still Enabled in bios, this function for Save power consumption.

example : u don't need all core for software notepad /game solitaire !
