  1. it should automatically be adjusting its clock speed (up or down) based what you are doing. if it isn't doing that look in your bios for "intel speed step" and enable it.

    EDIT
    you can use a program like CPUz to verify the current clock speed.

  2. It will do it for you.
  3. Like flank said, it should automatically be adjusting its clock speed as needed. Enable "intel speed step" like he said if it wasn't enabled by default (it should already have been if you never touched anything in the BIOS).

    Also, assuming everything is working correctly, it will downclock all the way to 1.6ghz by default if you are just webbrowsing or typing word documents. At least that's what it does for me. You can also check your cpu speed by using the free program "cpu-z". Just do a quick google search for it.

    i know it downclock it self what i mean is to limit it's clock speed to 3ghz if it is safe
