What does CPU-Z say when you put a load on it? Does it come up to 3.0? I like Prime95 for testing. dorrito64 September 30, 2008 11:03:18 PM i ran CPU-Z right after i did Prime95. came up to 2.8GHZ I read around and it could be that my CPU isn't compatible with speedstep. I disabled C1E. my friend says that it's about the same thing. I also wen to power settings and put it to always on Related resources Can't find speedstep in my bios . - Forum Updated BIOS , it broke Speedstep ?
