P4 2.4C Issues
« on: July 04, 2008, 08:56:49 PM »

So, I noticed the other day when booting up that my rig was running at 1600Mhz instead of the usual 2400.  I went into the BIOS and played around a bit and for some reason the multiplier got dropped down to 8 instead of 12...I thought this was a locked multiplier? 

On another note...Now that I'm trying to bump it back up to my original speeds it wont push past 2700 Mhz with it at 230 FSB and my ratio at 5:4.  This is confusing me because it was sitting stable at 3Ghz just a few weeks ago...any advice on how to jump it back up? maybe some hints on what to do? 

I've got the rig running on 512MB of Corsair XMS (2x256) on an ASUS P4C800 DLX.

Did you by any chance do a BIOS update?

Have not done any updates in a while to it, so nothing has really been modified to make it change like it did.  But I may have to do a few updates (chipset, BIOS etc...)  I'll check in to that and see what happens with the problem...

As of now no change in anything, I'm back down to stock speeds and its finally registering on CPU-Z as P4 2.4C and everything including latency on my RAM is stock.  Its disappointing to see my system drop like that out of nowhere...I'm curious if its taking a turn for the worst or not.  It has been 4-5 years non-stop running but who knows.

You don't happen to have an engineering sample would u? I had a 2.4C that was multi unlocked.

I thought these procs were unlocked downwards, but were locked from going up, IIRC that was with a P4 530 or something like that so it might not apply to the 2.4C.  I've also had an engineering sample that was unlocked in both directions.
