Intel speed step
the last few weeks CPU-Z shows my cpu at maximim ghz and multiplier is at 25x (max)
then i open task manager and the performance tab and my cpu is at 12% useage.
the only way to fix this is with a re-boot.
when this happens all the programs running under processes is the same either way
so there is no program doing this that i can see and it's ok for about 1 day then it does it again.
i have my windows power plan at maximum performance but i have also set the cpu to have a minimum of 10% and maximum of 100%
so it's not set to be at 100% all the time and like i said re-booting fixes it for about a day.
thanks for any help.

What does CPU-Z show your CPU at after a reboot?

My Opinion is no more important or right than yours. But if your using the LATEST drivers, go back to the prior set.

Piss Poor tech support blame all issues on drivers and assumes that your an idiot. Find a set that you know worked and see if the problem exists still.

""Don't f with it if it ain't broken!""

Constantly updating drivers is a good way to F'up the whole system.

after re-boot it is at the max of 3341.12 mhz but then it goes down to 1606.00 and then of course goes
up and down per use. it's just that after a few day's it stays at 3341.12mhz and won't go down untill i re-boot.
does it matter that i leave my tower on 24 hrs 7 days a week? i only turn it off if i will be gone more then 1 day.

I never let my HD stop.

I leave my system on 24/7...But Im on an AMD older setup.

This sounds similar to the S3 / Hybernate issue but thats about all I remember about it.

I don't use hybernate or the sleep function.
funny thing is as long as i am on my computer using it the cpu never gets stuck on max ghz.
maybe ill set my hard drives to not stop and keep them running and see what happens.
thanks for your help though.

Yeah ! I gave up on hibernate and sleep a long time ago, due to problems getting the machine to 'wake up' fully and stably. I just have the monitor shut down after 20 min.
I don't run the machine 24/7 though. I reckon modern HDD's can handle a spin-up every day. Haven't had one go south on me yet (*crosses fingers*).

watching it for 4 days now and it is down clocking and up clocking the way it should.
