    E6500 half speed on DP965LT.  Possible Incompatibly?


      First off, hello Intel community!   : )



      MS Windows XP Home 32-bit SP3

      Intel Pentium E6500

      DDR2 2GB F2-6400CL5-2GBNT

      Intel Corporation DP965LT (J1PR) MoBo

      NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460

      Antex Neo Eco 620c

      Latest Intel Bios 3/2009

      -WIndows XP set on High Performance power setting. No hibernation.

      -Mobo does not support Intel SpeedStep Technology and is not listed in BIOS.



      The bios recognizes the processor as a 2.9ghz

      Within the BIOS the current processor speed reads around 1600mhz.


      When using Prime95 the core 0 temp stays around 42 and the core 1 goes from 34-42's.


      Using Intel's Compatability tool the E6500 is not even listed for the DP965LT mobo and visa versa.


      I just want to make sure that this is definetly a compatability issue before I buy a new CPU or MoBo.


      I also ran Intel's Processor Identification tool and got 1.59GHz reported for both cores and 2.93 Expected.

      1064MHz System Bus reported for both cores with a 1066MHz expected.



      I'm asking for someone to look over my current information and comfirm. If you need any more information let me know. : )


      Thank You!  : )
