    Do you have an power saving features on? I'm not sure they go all to downgrading by 4 Multipliers...but that is odd.

    C1E, EIST, Speedstep...those are popular Intel Power Saving features usually found and enabled/disabled in BIOS.

    :toast:

    EDIT: If you have a CPU stress test like Prime or Orthos...keep a program running like CPU-Z and watch to see if there's a change in CPU speed/Multi when the CPU is loaded...this will verify a power saving feature is in-fact turned on.

    Someone asks this on every forum ~once a week...
    Atleast for the couple years I've been reading tech forums.
