Cpu Randomly Switching From X6 To X9 Multiplier

Recommended Posts

Ok, CPUID and everest ultimate edition both report my Q6600 at my overclock but then also both randomly, every few seconds, switch the multiplier between x6 and x9 effecting the overall clock

 

I just changed motherboards today but i had this same problem with my old motherboard, i will click into everest or cpuid, look at the clock, it will read something like

 

CPU clock: 2997.5Mhz

CPU multiplier: 9

CPU FSB: 333

 

then randomly a few seconds later report (without refreshing the page)

 

CPU clock: 1998.3

CPU multiplier: 6

CPU FSB: 333

 

Is this ment to happen? is it a power saving feature? a software/hardware error?

 

Thanks

Thats the Cool and Quiet or C1E feature. It might be called something else for each motherboard. It is basically to lower power consumption. Most laptops use it to save battery life.

Yep, you can disable it in the bios, also disable thermal throttling.
