Hey Guys,

I've just installed a ASUS P5E X38 to replace a sick Gigabyte board.
I'm really happy with the ASUS but there one thing I can't figure out. With my old gigabyte board
I could see the CPU core speed dynamically changing depending on system demand. Looking in CPU-Z
the core speed is staying locked at max speed. I can't see any kind of setting in the BIOS that could help relax
these speeds when theres no demand.

I'd appreciate it if someone could point me the right way to fixing this. Just a little worried about sucking up too
much power & increasing the powerbill :)

cheers,
george

Thank you sir.

speedstep wasn't listed until after restoring defaults & then it showed up.
I prob messed with something in there earlier.

Problem solved, thanks guys.

considering your going to save about 10 watts tops at idle, You might want to leave your computer of instead of idling, as saving about .004 cents per hour is going to be overrun by the .25 cents per hour of running the machine

Uh, maybe it would be a heat thing. :sarcastic:

I have a Q6600 OC to 3G, EIST disabled and running 24/7. There really is nothing like sucking up all of the worlds resources. :kaola:
