    Want CPU speed to always stay at maximum frequency?


    What software (besides high performance mode in windows control panel) can lock the CPU at it's highest frequency?
    My CPU is Intel Celeron Quad Core 2.00Ghz
    but it has a "burst" frequency up to 2.41Ghz (similar to turbo boost) and I would like it to stay at it's highest frequency since I have no worries about overheating
    (never goes above 42* C at full load)
    The problem is the speed constantly changes between 2.00Ghz 2.03Ghz 2.07Ghz (and so on ect... in between 2.00Ghz and 2.41Ghz) And my browser speed constantly goes up and down webpages stalling and going fast causing stuttering so I wonder what software can remedy this little problem?

    Or if there is some kind of overclocking software that would do something similar to locking the frequency?
    Tried all kinds of FSB-related tools but nada so far.

    you need to disable Intel speed step and C1E in the BIOS.

    Unpark your Core's as well and change your Power-Profile to "High Performance".

    You can unpark them via that tool here (my upload): Click

    Should be packed with WinRAR-5.

    Also assign manual the multiplyer for your cores and BCLK Frequency in your BIOS.

    You could also try Throttlestop and set the multiplier to the highest value.

    Tried but my bios can only change date and time and a couple hard drive boot order options. Where is such option for intel speed step and C1E? I dug through my bios for hours finding no such options
    Throttlestop gave me unsupported/unrecognized CPU and it closed without letting me do anything
    and the unpark core app doesnt show anything in when i search registry nothing to unpark or even see listed.

    In some MB, the intel speed step is called EIST. Some low end MB will not have C1E feature, so you are stuck.
