Solved Asus M4A79XTD EVO feature? Tags: Motherboards Asus CPUs Last response: December 11, 2009 11:44 PM in Motherboards Share manna3i December 11, 2009 12:23:46 PM i recently got that asus motherboard with a Phenom II x4 965 cpu, but when i monitor the CPU speed in CPU-Z i notice the multiplier keeps bouncing from x4, x11, x13.5 , x17 in a random fashion. So i am wondering is it a feature in this mobo that lowers the multiplier if the system is idle? will i be able to disable that feature? thanks in advance.

It should jump up as soon as you need the power and have minimal performance impact, but if you want to disable it just disable cool n quiet in the BIOS.

EXT64 a b V Motherboard a b à CPUs December 11, 2009 11:44:04 PM Yep, that is the idea. The old Phenom I's did have a performance hit, but I believe with the PII's the performance hit is negligible. I would recommend leaving it on unless you OC or run into problems. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
