Auto cpu multiplier?

So I have an AMD Phenom II x2 and I unlocked a core to make it a x3 (the other one was defective).
Its also a black edition so I bumped up the multiplier from auto (max was 14) to 16. Now however, its a constant x16 multiplier unlike the auto setting, where it would change when not under load.

is there a way to keep the auto setting but bump up the max multiplier to x16? Do i need to update bios?

  1. Technically, cool n quiet and C1E should still be working. Check the bios and re-enable them if they are disable. If that doesn't work, I'll see if I can think of something else.
  2. Just checked. They are both enabled. I also thought the same thing as you did, but I guess we are wrong :(
  3. o.O just a stab in the dark... you're not using AOD for overclocking the cpu are you?
  4. What is AOD? I'm using BIOS to overclock.

    AMD Overdrive, but, you don't wanna be using it for overclocking anyway :)
  6. Anymore ideas on how to fix this?

    Are you using windows XP? Although this driver was for the K8 architecture, it might do something.
