    It basically underclocks your processor when you're idling.
  5. any help with this?
    should i just raise the multiplier back to 10.5 in bios???

    everything else seems like it should be
  6. Have you checked that you have the lastest BIOS for that motherboard. Newer BIOS may include your processor to make sure it's read correctly.

    What do things look like when it POSTs (pre Windows)? Does it recognize the CPU properly there?
  7. the board is the latest revision (2.0) it supports the cpu OOB or any cpu . The latest bios is FC ,which i have. It recognizes the cpu correctly in POST but at 2.4 ghz. the multi is set 9.0 but it should be 10.5 :??:
  8. did you clear cmos before changing cpu if you did?. ROFL demonnnn posts 195, points : 1337
  9. i didn't but the board and e6300 are brand new, only used e6300 for first time on the board .

    I think clearing cmos is unecessary in my case
  10. Are you saying that the multiplier stays at 9 when the CPU is very busy?

    yes!
  12. Then set it to 10.5 in the BIOS.
  13. Do I need to increase the vcore?
  14. No. Just change the multiplier from 9 to 10.5.
  15. Done.

    now 2.80 ghz :)

    thanks!!
