flickering multiplier

hi there

i am rather new to o/cing so please have mercy!

anyway i have a E2200 on a p43 board and have set the FSB to 250 and multiplier to 11x. Voltages are on auto - cpu ~ 1.168v.

strangely though in CPU-Z the multiplier keeps on changing from 6x to 11x (and hence core speed from 2750 to 1500)

any help on why this is happening and how to stop it would be appreciated!

p.s. my temps on boot in the bios were only ~ 35C so i dont think it is a safety mechanism activating

That would either be Intel Speedstep or the C1E Halting at work. Both are options in the BIOS that can be disabled. Will idle at the 6x multi and go up to the 11x multi at load
