Specs: WINDOWS, E6700/ddr800
Hello! I have an E6700 pentium at 3.2mhz processor on a p5l-mx asus motherboard. The cpu is recognised as one core only at 1596mhz with fsb at 1065mhz. Any help how to see the second core? I have the latest ami bios (v.1103).

The Pentium E6700 isn't shown on the CPU supported list: https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboard...

Where are you coming up with this info? >>> "The cpu is recognised as one core only at 1596mhz with fsb at 1065mhz"

The FSB speed is correct (266MHz frequency) so the problem is with the multiplier. The multiplier should be 12x but it's at 6x. My guess is SpeedStep is doing it's job & automatically lowering the multiplier under light load conditions. You should be able to disable SpeedStep (EIST) in the BIOS, but then the CPU will always run at 3.2GHz, even at idle.

EDIT: try installing OCCT & then run the load test. See if the CPU speed increases as the load increases.

The info comes from the Bios->cpu configuration and hardware info.
Speedstep is off. The problem is that it recognise only one core. Not compatible?

No i didnt run it cause there is no OS currently but i have told you that speedstep is off in the bios. Also i have checked that the cpu is not compatible at that speed 3.2ghz. I think i should get another cpu from the list.

How is the CPU shown in the BIOS under System Info? Genuine Intel CPU 1600Mhz? Did you manually configure the CPU & DRAM settings?

The Core 2 Duo E6700 is on the CPU support list. BUT it lists a certain BIOS version to be supported. Update your BIOS with the latest version and then try setting your CPU settings again.

Please take all proper precaution when flashing a BIOS since a failed BIOS update can leave you with an unusable motherboard. If you have not done this before, please read more about it and dangers/precautions present.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
