I'm new to these pc-building stuff and I've been having some CPU issues, I've been monitoring by CPU's speed with Asus' AI Suite II that came with my motherboard, and realize that it deosnt even go above 1.7GHz even when I am rendering HD videos. Then I tried using Intel's Turbo Boost Monitor and noticed that my Processor is always on Energy Saving Mode. Has anybody face this problem before? Please do help!

I'd start by resetting the BIOS to stock/default settings. Whenever things start happening that you simply can't understand, it's best to just reset the BIOS instead of going back in and enabling this or disabling that. If it still has issues after you reset it to stock, then let us know.
