Hi there, i just bought a intel i7 930 and some more stuff, i run CPU-Z and i'm not sure if the stock values are correct, here's one pic.



i didn't like these values and i didn't find a pic with factory values to compare, all the pics i found are i7 930 with Overclock, maybe i can try flashing the bios to see if i have better results.
i'm all ears :p 

(Excuse my english i speak spanish)

If SpeedStep is enabled in your BIOS, it will drop your clock speed at idle, and your voltage along with it. This should be normal.

Indeed Speedstep at work. If you want to disable it, go to bios and you'll find it under CPU features most likely. Once you're there disable Enhanced Halt too.
Speedstep is shorted to EIST in some bios'es

Thank you guys i will disable that option :) , the only thing is... after i posted this question, my PSU died whit no more than 10 hs of use, so i have to go for an RMA ( I have tested my PC whit a generic PSU and turns on normally. thank god :)  )

Any particular reason why you want to disable speedstep? Speedstep kicks in when the CPU isn't really being used, lowering the multiplier (look at the x12 in CPU-Z) and thus drawing less power and creating less heat.
When one or more cores are being stressed, the multiplier will be raised back to "normal" settings or beyond (turbo).

No really, i have no experience whit i7 or high performance PC, this is my first one :) , my early's Pc's are all basic, maybe a medium video card on it but thats it.
So what i really want's to know is if the values of this procesor are fine, and maybe if you guys can tell me what i can run on it to see full potential from factory, the principal reason is that i have 2 days left for make a DOA replace in case i have a damage one.
another thing, after running "CPU-Z", i tried to run the "intel processor diagnostic", so i downloaded this app "IPDT Installer 1.20.0.1.exe" from intel support site, i have installed on a brand new OS "Win 7 32 bit", but every time I'll try to run the app this crashes.

Say this.

Download prime 95, run it, open cpu-z. Prime 95 will run your cpu at 100% usage, and you'll be able to see the actual settings of the processor in cpu z.
