    DX58SO2 WRONG BIOS VALUE REPORTED

    M.T.R

      hi, there is a problem with the DX58SO2. We have two computers with this board. We have set the max non turbo multiplier to 23. We have two programs for reading this parameter from the BIOS. The BIOS reports randomly max non turbo multiplier = 24. Mostly it reports 23, but sometimes 24. There's no rule to find out. We have tested this long time. This is reproducable on both boards. Thanks for assistance

          Hello M.T.R, 

           

           

          I understand that your processor's multiplier will drop down randomly when using the monitoring tools.

           

          Remember that in order to set a default value, you need to disable the Enhanced Intel SpeedStep(R) Technology (EIST) in BIOS. Also, the Intel(R) Turbo Boost will only go higher when the processor requires it and the voltage and temperatures on the cores permit it.

           

          Regards.

            hi victor,

             

            on one board this single parameter "max non turbo multiplier" was default = 23

            on the other board it was 24 (which is the max possible.)

             

            we had set both boards to 24 then, cause the newer one had the value 24 by default.

             

            however,

            the boards were running fine so far,

            but about once in two weeks we had a blue screen without reason.

             

            we have set then for testing this parameter on both boards to 23.

             

            since this time we have nomore blue screens, not any one.

             

             

            when we are monitoring the board we see,

             

            that at first boot both boards report "max non turbo multiplier" =24

            and after reboot "max non turbo multiplier" =23

             

            (although 23 is set in BIOS for both boards.)

            why these two values?

             

            So we think, that the BIOS is reporting wrong value after first cold bootup,

             

            This was the reason for my post.

             

            thanks for attention

             

            best regards
