Intel Speed Step is the name of it!
Thanks for replying, i googled it and disabled EIST in the bios under advanced bios settings. For some reason it is jumping between 6 and 9 multiplier on cpuz. any ideas?
Edit, it has stopped jumping between 6 and 9 and is sitting on the 6 multiplier. Also i am using a ZALMAN FATAL1TY FS-C77 hs/fan with some artic mx-2 thermal paste. says my temps are.... 53, 53, 59,58 on idle depending on the cores. the mobo might be under clocking my cpu?
Let me know your thoughts please
