Hey,

I checked my 'system' information last night. If stated I am running an e6400 2.3 Ghz 1.60.
Does this mean my processor is running at 1.60?

Thanks.

I believe thats how much the processor throttles when idle, 1.6GHz when doing nothing.

Okay, I'm convinced there is a problem here now.

I have disabled the Speedstep. I have reattached my Arctic pro with new thermal paste and the temp is 23C.

I have benchmarked the computer a couple of times and my processor does not go higher than 1.6 ghz.

I'm getting a bit upset by this as I have had the machine apart 3-4 times now checking every bit is connected and am certain there are no loose connections.

Could there be any other way of getting the processor running at the speed its supposed it?

Check your windows power settings make sure it is on Home or Always On. that have happen to few of my friends and to myself with the Intel Core 2 Duo's

Hey,

Thanks for that, I've checked the power settings and have flicked between always on and home but neither make a difference.

I'm looking into water cooling in case the Artic pro fan just isn't doing its job. The bios states it is running at 23C but I checked using CPU-Z and it claims the temp is fan 1: 50C and Fan 2: 28C

I guess this could be the only option now? Anyone any other ideas.

Sorry this reply is so late, hope you actually see it. Your 6400 has a multiplier of 8 I believe, maybe your FSB is running at 800 instead of 1066. 800 divided by 4 is 200 times 8 would be 1600 or 1.6ghz!

Hi,

Thanks for that.

I managed to solve this about three days ago when a friend bough the same motherboard. Think I'll just invest the money in the new year on a tasty 975 board. Get myself ready for quad core when they come down in price.

I am using a 975 board, and that (multiplier dropped to 😎 happened to me before.
