    I noticed you didn't fill your system specs out completely and you should do that. What psu and motherboard do you have?

    open DXDIAG, if your CPU are detected 2400 Mhz but ~ @1 Ghz, it must be "Cool and Quiet" program, it can underclock your CPU when idle for better cooling and power efficient.

    but when full load, your CPU turn into it's original clock.
