Question About E8400 Settings

  1. I have an E6400. In the BIOS under CPU features it has 6 different ones.
    Thermal control
    Limit CPU ID Max Value
    C1E Function
    Execute disable Bit
    Virtualization Tech
    EIST Function

    I just bought an E8400 which I have to RMA as the temp sensor is stuck on 103C. One thing I noticed when first setting it up was the Virtualization Tech and EIST function were missing.. I was just curious if anyone knows if they are unavailable in the 45's or if it was a part of this CPU's issues. Thanks. Specs in profile.

    That may be a bios issue. Have you tried a different bios version? My brother has that cpu and he was able to tinker with those options, its not a 45nm issue.

    The board (ABIT IP35 Pro) has the latest BIOS. The CPU is on it's way back to newegg so I'll wait and see if it's a board issue or part of the problems with the bad one, when the replacement coms back. I just needed to know if they were supposed to be there. Thanks sup.
