    The last few days I've noticed that my clock speed does not decrease with voltage even on stock settings. I never used fixed OC so anytime I OC I always use dvid to set offset and it all worked flawlessly (vcore decrease and so does clock speed).

    Now, any setting I use doesn't decrease clock speed when the CPU is not underload and voltage is decreased. Can anyone explain this?

    p.s. Im on GIGABYTE Z77X-UD3H rev1.1 with F18 (latest non-beta)

    Windows power settings. Board used and BIOS don't matter.

    Also, enabling XMP can cause this as well.

    ^+1 :)
    Also check the usage of the CPU. Low voltage does not mean that your CPU is not being used. Some background process(maybe a virus) might be using the CPU which prevents the CPU to go to the low frequency states..
