Not sure if Core Clock Speed is correct.

So long story short I had some problems with my PC and I had to reformat my hard drive and reinstall WIndows 7. I play the game League of Legends quite a bit and before I reinstalled my OS I'd get a constant 60-100 frames now that I'm back I barely get 60fps and in the heat of battle it will get around 20-30. Now I was messing around with MSI afterburner and I eventually uninstalled it because I don't need it but I'm not sure if the settings actually reverted.

Here's my question: My Core Speed reads 798.2 MHz and bus speed 99.7 (Is this very low for my hardware? I know some people are around 2000 MHz) I know almost nothing about over/underclocking so I'm not sure if something is wrong or what.

Here are my PC Specs:

Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (6.1, Build 7601) Service Pack 1
System Model: Dell System XPS L502X
BIOS: Default System BIOS
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2720QM CPU @ 2.20GHz (8 CPUs), ~2.2GHz
Memory: 8192MB RAM
Available OS Memory: 8086MB RAM
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GT 540MM
Page File: 3974MB used, 12196MB available
DirectX Version: DirectX 11
DX Setup Parameters: Not found


If there is any other information that is missing please let me know.

    Those are fine, it's 800mhz because you are idling and 100bclk is normal. Did you get the graphics drivers from nvidia or dell?

    I got them from NVIDIA. I just ran a quick 2 minute stress test using OCCT (never used this program before) and it appears my computer is only using half of my RAM as well unless I am just reading this wrong. I should also note that my computer generally does feel slower, unless that is just my mind playing with me. I'll add some pictures.



  3. The cpu stayed at 800mhz the whole time?
