E6300 Problem

  1. Idk, my multiplier is one off in CPU-z but is right in coretemp if that even reads frequencies.

    Yes that is my new vista premium.

    Cpuz will not read my e4300 multi correctly in vista either, it says it's 6x, when it's 9x.

    Is that because of SpeedStep?

    Here's what mine shows.

    Edit: I've also noticed that cpu voltage is random depending on the program...

    I turned speedstep off and it is reading it fine now.

    F1N3ST: cool.

    vnf4ultra: What happens if you try opening some moderately-CPU-taxing program like a web browser? See if it changes then.

    SpeedStep, as described here, will decrease the CPU multiplier when the CPU is idling (to conserve power). When the CPU starts having to work, the multiplier is put back to normal.

    Just a quick ? how does the 3D aero glass thing work like on the commercials. I have the theme set to aero glass.

    windows key+tab = flip 3d

    Or there should be a quick launch button for it in the taskbar.

    I find it odd about my multi, as different programs are reporting different things AT THE SAME TIME, so that can't be speedstep I wouldn't think.

    The only thing that's remotely related to speedstep (eist) in my bios is the c1e support, which I disabled, with no effect. This is what I found regarding c1e.

    I'm guessing that my bios just isn't up to date enough to properly support the e4300, and they don't have any newer bios than what I have, which is several months old.

    So you'd rather disable power saving functions than let a couple of applications show incorrect readings?
