[SOLVED] Question about speedstep

Recommended Posts



I'm totally new to this speedstep stuff and I would also like a working speedstep. I launched SMC Monitor to check P & C states and get about 10 states in the list (Core i5 430m CPU). I also have a DSDT which I've patched with DSDTFixer (don't know if this is right, but there weren't any errors and I do not know much about DSDT). I also checked CPU-X but there is the original freq. displayed (max till turbo boost). If you need my DSDT I will upload it when it is necessary ;)


My question is: How can I check whether speedstep is enabled or not?


Thanks in advance.


P.S. You must get sick of these questions, but I searched and searched, but couldn't find a working app (MSR tools doesn't work on Lion x64 and MSRDumper is only for sandy bridge. MSRDumper doesn't return any values though (don't know if my CPU is sandy bridge) :( )

Hi there,


How do I check in SMC monitor for frequency changes? I can add many values and all are kinda strange :S


Thanks in advance!

Oh, I haven't installed IntelCPUMonitor.kext. Shame on me! xD


Launched SMC Monitor and frequencies are different once in a while (1452, 1188, 1539 etc etc). So, it works! :D


Thanks for the help anyway ;)
