I have a Gigabyte GA-P31-DS3L motherboard with the latest F10a bios installed,but my Core 2 Quad Q9400 cpu is running at 2ghz,even when under load.I tried disabling Intel EIST (Speedstep) and C1E (cpu enhanced halt) and i also tried to manually set the multiplier to 8 in bios,but after i save,it just returns back to 6.Is this a bios glitch or no? I tried to underclock the CPU and it works,but it won't go past 2ghz.The ram is overclocked to 800mhz,but i can't overclock the cpu or change it's multiplier
Can somebody help me?
Post screenshots of first (CPU) & third (Mainboard) tabs of CPU-Z with current CPU.
Tell sSpec of your Q9400.

Do Load Defaults in BIOS.
Make a screenshot of HWMonitor with full CPU load.
I tried to load bios defaults,but it just returns back to 6 after i save,and i tried to clear cmos as well but it didn't work
Also I need TXT report of CPU-Z.

Native DOS isn't command line in Windows.
Make DOS USB-stick (e.g, by Rufus).

I fixed the problem.I turned off TM2 and it worked,but the cpu is performing worse than it is at 2 ghz.And for some odd reason,when i enable tm2 again,cpu is performing like it should and it still runs at 2 ghz,but after i restart the pc,it's performing like it did before at 2ghz.I have to overclock it to 3.2ghz to make it perform like it should at it's stock frequency
