Hi! With the system in my specs I got a wierd "problem". My CPU (C2D Q6600) supports Intels Enhanced EIST mode in which multiplier and voltage is adjusted depending on load in small increments, also my mobo supports Enhanced EIST. I run WinXP x32 now and have enabled Enhanced EIST in the WinXP power-managment but for some reason when I check the CPU speed with CPU-Z for example I only can see 2 different MHz amounts, 1600MHz idle (multi 6x) and 2400MHz (multi 9x) under load - no small increments whatsoever. I even used a program called CPUKiller3 to put different CPU loads on the Q6600 but it will not increase steadily but just jump to max speed. In Bios I tried to put C1E on auto and disabled mode but nothing changes. The only reason I call this a problem is that the drastic jumps in MHz seem to make my system a little laggy. Thx for all insights!
