Do you have any of those smart overclocking features on? It's possible that since the computer isn't under load, the processor is being underclocked.

I've been playing around with my E6600, I installed that little tool, and the same thing happens to me. Put it under load, however, and it bumps up the multiplier to 9 as it should be.



You should try some OCing! Mine went to 3 GHz without a hitch, but then again, I do have some sweet cooling going on.

Check for something in your bios, my E6300 doesn't do it. That program may cause it to change though.

I'm sure in the settings somewhere there's a way to change it. Personally, I like it how it is. Only stress the thing when need be, you know?

And yeah, I'm pretty sure it's the program that does it. It never happened before it was installed AFAIK.
