    OK, but I have both C1E and EIST "enabled" In fact it's been driving me crazy so I've been fooling with the whole enable this and that thing to get it working properly.

    Here's the latest settings thus far....

    Turbo Boost - Enabled
    CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E) - Enabled
    C3/C6/C7 State Support - Disabled (had it enabled, made no difference)
    CPU EIST Function - Enabled

    So far CPU-Z still shows full load.

    I have the CPU multi at 21, even though CPU-Z and the boot screen says 22. I guess it'll say that because of Turbo being on?

    Thanks.

    Go to control panel, power options, and choose balanced power plan.

    Yes turbo enables 22, if you want to use 21 only (Advised) disable turbo and set 21

    Hmmmm.....I already had "Balanced" for a power plan but did some tweaks; don't recall messing with the "Processor" settings though. As It turned out, that's what the problem was; minimum and maximum was set to 100%. A reset fixed the issue. Now minimum is set to 5% usage and maximum is set to 100%.

    Thanks!

    Also, can you tell me why I shouldn't use "Turbo"? (which pushes my multi to 22x).

    Again, thanks.

    Min?Max you probably set to 100% because I think you asked before why it was dropping in speed :) so we helped you get speedstep disabled and your CPU at 100%

    22 Multi is unstable, and requires more voltage to get stable, nothing to do with the speed at all, just i7's do not like Even CPU Multi's is all.

    I don't think that was me :)

    At any rate it was the "Processor Power Management" setting that was screwed up - Minimum was set to 100%, causing the processor to run wide open, it's now set to 5%

    All good now and CPU-Z is reporting accordingly.

    Thanks. That was driving me crazy.

    As to turbo mode, I'll keep that in mind.

    Thanks for your help. I'm out. nite nite

    PS - My issue (http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/welc...tml#post355363) with the LED overvolt light seems to have fixed itself. It's now off, even though I'm still running my memory at 8-8-8-21-1 1600MHz @1.64 volts! Hmmmm???

    BTW I've also set all my voltages manually, could this have something to do with the LED light in the first place?

    Just a thought.

    Hmm, that should reset it self if you change plans then set plan back to balanced, but maybe not? Anyhow, you got it!

    Yes, that may be why your LED's were on, depending on which you are talking about, Auto voltages can often set them way to high

    Hey Lsdmeasap,

    Thanks for the help. All good now.

    BTW this is my first truely tweakable board, been mainly dealing with Intel, so there is a slight learning cure with regards to the BIOS settings. Finally got it set up to my liking (for now).

    Thanks.

    Anytime!

    Ya, it is a big move coming from an Intel BIOS or otherwise, to GIGABYTE, they have MANY BIOS Options!

    Post back anytime if you need more help with anything

    Unhappy EP35c-DS3R Strange Display problem during Boot

    I am using:
    Gigabyte EP35C-DS3R (BIOS ver. F4)
    Intel core 2 quad Q8200
    DDR3 (667MHz) Single channel 2GB Kingston Memory
    Graphics:Nvdia GeForce 9400GT revision C1

    [while CPU-Z shows in the 'Mainboard' Tab:-
    Graphics Interface
    Version: PCI-Express
    Link width: x1 Max. supported: x16]

    LG Studioworks 700E monitor
    500 GB Seagate HDD

    My Problem is:
    When I press the power button of my PC it starts(as I can hear cpu fan sound & see power,HDD lights) but no display till 10seconds and at 10sec a long 1sec lasting beep comes no display till now.. and the display does not comes within 5min if waited.
    But at 10sec when the long beep comes if I press the 'REBOOT' button on my PC it reboots after 5-10sec of pressing the reboot button(as the power light & HDD light turns off and then again turns on) and within 2-3sec I hear a short beep and the display comes and the windows XP loads normally and creates no problem till I shutdown. But after shuttdown if I want to turn on the PC the same thing happens, I have to wait 10secs then the long 1sec beep comes after I hear the long beep I have to press the 'REBOOT' button of my PC then after 2-3sec I hear the short beep and the OS loads normally.

    Can you suggest me why I am facing this kind of startup problems during boot?
    Thanks in advance..
