Cool and Quiet - it throttles back the CPU speed when it has been idle for a certain period of time. Try putting some kind of load on the CPU (Prime95, SuperPi) and the core speed will return to normal.
Is it just me, or has this topic been poping up more and more often?
Interesting how the Multiplier changes from x5 up to x9 or x10 along with the Core Speed. Multiplier of the Bus Speed?
The two are related: bus speed x multiplier = CPU clock. By adjusting the multiplier, one can adjust the clock speed.
Where can I manually increase this multiplier to get more CPU speed?
In your case, you don't want to raise the multiplier, but instead keep it from dropping. Here's a way to disable Cool and Quiet.
easiest way to disable-
right click on desktop to bring up menu and click on properties
click on screen saver tab
click on power button in lower right
change power scheme to anything other than "minimal power management"
Click on apply then OK
2nd easiest way-
You can also disable in the BIOS- find option and turn off.
Turning off this feature will always keep your CPU at its default speed, 2000MHz.
Its Cool n Quiet. You can disable it, but there isn't really any need to unless you are overclocking. It instantly changes the CPU speed back up to full when it is under load. Doesn't really affect performance, all it does is keep your pc running cool, quiet, and a little cheaper.
