Hello, i update my system, so i bought a new processor. i replaced my old c2d e4600 to e7500. (i have gigabyte ep 35c ds3r, with the lastest bios F4). When i installed the cpu and run windows i check with cpu-z. First weird thing that i noticed, my cpu run at 2,1ghz (8x266), (the original clock at 2,93ghz (11x266). C1E , and eist enabled. Then i go back to bios then i set up the new clock ratio. Before the adjust cpu wei score-> 5,9 , after 6,4 . The question is why my cpu run at 2,1ghz (in default speed ?) If i run at 266x11 and in 2,93ghz will be ok ? or i should switch back ? (sorry for bad english)

Hello, and welcome to THG.
If you want to go to 11 on the FSB, then you may want to bump up the voltage a little.
this might be obvious but could it be Intel Speedstep (eist) if your not familiar with Speedstep it determines CPU speed by usage demands right now my C2D 2.93 (11 x 266) is running at 1.6 (266x6) when I start using a demanding application (avi encoder) it will go up to 2.93 if I am just browsing it is around 1.6-1.8 the E7500 is designed to run at 266 x11 multiplier I have an E4500 at OC 2.93 which is very similar performance
Download gigabyte's Easy tune 6 It will o.c. your system automaticly with in the specs that you set. My c2duo 7300 has been at 3.2 from 2.66 rock steady on stock Intel HS and fan for a few years . You will notice a difference.
