    Default I can't disable EIST

    I'm trying to use the turbo mode to oc this new 920 D0, but the multi keeps dropping to 20. I've disabled EIST and the other energy saving options in bios. and I went into the power management options of windows 7 and set it to high with min cpu set to 100%. As soon as I put any kind of load on the CPU the multi drops to 20. I've tried multiple bios and still no luck. I open turbo I7 and the Eist box is checked even though I disabled it in bios. Could this be a bad processor?

    Do you also have C1E disabled. Just a wild guess.

    How are your temps and cooling?

    Dynamic frequency scaling (also known as CPU throttling) is a technique in computer architecture where a processor is run at a less-than-maximum frequency in order to conserve power. Dynamic frequency scaling is commonly used in laptops and other mobile devices, where energy comes from a battery and thus is limited. It is also used in quiet computing settings and to decrease energy and cooling costs for lightly loaded machines. Less heat output, in turn, allows the system cooling fans to be throttled down or turned off, further decreasing power consumption. It is also used for reducing heat in badly cooled systems when the temperature reaches a certain threshold. Most systems affected by this are inadequately cooled overclocked systems.
    Give a try at this utility too...

    Excuse my ignorance javanese but what is the file in the link you provided and how do I use it? My max core temp is 72 under load. I ended up exchanging the CPU at Microcenter and the new one does the same thing. The good thing about the new CPU is it seems to like the 20 multiplier alot more than the previous chip even though it's from the same batch.
    The strang thing about this chip compared to every other 920 i've seen is that in bios the qpi/vtt voltage options go 1.280,1.30,1.320 ect. Every other 920 i've seen the qpi/vtt voltage options go 1.275,1.295,1.315,ect.. I don't know if this is normal or if my mobo is acting up. I don't know if I should reinstall w7 or not either.

    what program are u using to see that the multi drops below 21?? in easytune it should stay on 21 even with c1e and other options enabled ect

    the utility in the link is i7 Turbo. Just lets you watch the multis ...
    It might be the same one you call turbo i7 ... :/

    Give us a full template of your overclocking bios settings.

    Edit: And btw my qpi/vtt voltage has the same numerical progress as your new one. (1.28 - 1.30 - 1.32)

    A few things I have to ask, are you using an ES CPU?

    Are you using the latest easytune?

    Are you changing any CPU/Memory settings in windows, if so with what program?

    With C1E and EIST Disabled the Turbo 21 multi should not drop, unless you are using a ES CPU, or you are using an older Easytune, that is why I asked those things.

    What BIOS are you using?

    Peter says he got it from Microcenter and its the second one to do this, makes me think the motherboard. the QPI voltage increments are the same as mine, so no worries there.
    By the way, is that D0 stepping chip you got the one on sale for $199?
