got a question, after runnin my pc for a couple hours and my temps hit about 52-56 celcius my cpu speed goes from 3.2 (stock) to 1.7-2.2ghz any idea why this is happening? not doing any intese gaming, just browsing the web and running aim, compents are in my sig for those that want to s it
That could be the speedstep function kicking in. When your computer isn't under any real demand it will underclock the processor to reduce power consumption. It works very much like cool and quiet does for AMD.
true, but the program that i use shows auctly usage and it has never droped below 3.2 before, it might be theroticly clocking slower, but alwayz shows right aroudn 3.2, and even when i turned that off it was doin the same thing
so ur sayin that my low clock speed is cuz im bein hacked?ive alwayz had driver issues, and i have nvidias anithacker friewall up (no idea how good it is), and is there neway to fix it? more or less, am i bein hacked or just a bad build
A hacker could use clockgen to alter your speed. He could also uninstall drivers, or install incompatable ones. I use a router, and software to firewall, but was still hacked once.
Either way, your best bet is to start with a clean install.
The Prescotts require some high quality thermal paste on the core to properly transfer heat to the heatsink....
A while back, they experienced clock-throttling with nearly all Prescotts until they switched to using Intel's supplied thermal paste....it appears they (Intel)know what they were doing...(The 'brand name' pastes were not cutting it!)
sry its taken me so long, 64bit os is havin some trouble and my cpu temps are hittin high 80s now, no idea whats wrong plz help, tried everything i no of, and that 80 temp is wit everything outside of the case
