    Intel Pentium D 6300

    I seem to be having a problem with my processor. Its displaying 1602MHz, but the processor is actually a 1.86GHz Dual Core 6300. I have tried changing the BIOS settings, but when I do so, I cannot boot, and have to reset the CMOS using the jumper.
    current info:
    FSB 1068.51
    267.13 with 6x multiplier
    i don't really know what the origonal settings were, but i guess that doesn't help much anyway with the problem being that I can't change any clock settings. Its an ASUS P5LD2 mobo, with overclocking ability for stupid people like me. (it has the auto option for all the voltages, as well as 103% - 130%, none of which work).

    Ive read this is a very good processor to overclock, so i must be doing something wrong.

    Hi metguru,

    First of all, it's not Pentium D. It's Core 2 Duo.

    To answer to your question, are you using Vista? If you are, then set "High Performance" in the Power Options or change the CPU speeds in power options to 100% Max and 100% Min.

    Still this doesn't work, or you are in XP, go to BIOS and disable EIST (Enhanced Intel Speed Step). It should be there under power management, but I haven't seen the BIOS of this motherboard, so not sure about that. Maybe this is a bug and updating BIOS may solve it. But disabling EIST should work, unless of course you haven't played with the multiplier settings in the BIOS.

    Finally, yeah, this is a very good processor to overclock.

    oops, I thought they were the same thing, 'D' meaning the Dual core.
