have you tried stressing the cpu with prime95? the cpu will underclock its self when idle.

yeah i did that,but i found the problem it was ic3 on the cpu it lowers the clock to save power,and my motherboard a asus p6t7 supercomputer u have a option to lock the cpu on that state,which is just dumb,well maybe not since it was to work as a server mobo and i guess is for saving power,everything is smooth as butter running it now at 4.4ghz idlle temp 40 load is 75 and is on air,this cpu is really a monsta ,my voltage is 1.33v cpu i increased a .3 on the qpi and that was it never imagined that i i7 was this good,thanks pjumpleby for your time! bye
