Hey, thanks in advance.

Alright, so I built an intel build for a friend here are the specs

intel i5 4670k
corsair vengeance 2x4gb
EVGA gtx 780 3gb w/acx cooling
asus maximus vi Hero
Samsung 840 evo 120gb ssd
wd 2tb black

For some reason it keeps crashing, and upon opening task manager, and going to the performance tab it says that I only have .8 maximum speed on the CPU. On my own personal computer of a similar build is at 3.5 like normal.

Does anybody know why it would be at .8? The bios look normal, with the clock speed at normal.

please help!

You have power saving enabled, that's why is down clocks to 800 mhz, to save power. Crashing as in blue screen ?

Yeah blue screen. Power saving options on the bios?

Yes, in bios. What code do you get on blue screen ?

That is a vague error. You need to use something like http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html
to see what error code do you get. I think it will be something like 101 or 124 which are related to the voltages provided to the cpu.
