    Hello, I'm a bit concerned about my girlfriend's computer at the moment. She noticed that the multiplier on her processor is only going at 6x when it obviously should be higher on that.

    She is running:
    Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 (Wolfdale)
    ECS G31T-M Motherboard

    Here is a screen shot of Core Temp:

    We've already tried disabling C1E and EIST, but it still has the same results. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    run a program like OCCT or prime95 and see if it goes up

    What mussels said. Load the CPU 100%, even when the multi is set on auto it will go to the highest. Speaking of multiplier, check those settings.

    go into the BIOS, find the multiplier and turn it up.


    i have seen a few random systems where disabling EIST actually locked it to the lowest multi, instead of the highest.

    Thanks for the help. We solved the problem by just flashing her BIOS.
