its supposed to run at 2.5ghz. i used cpu-z and rightmark CPU clock utility when the cpu is stressed the clock is 1.8ghz when idle it goes down to 1.2ghz (which is fine). why it doesnt go to 2.5ghz like it should when its stressed? i also updated bios to the newest, still the same

what motherboard do you have?
Open up the BIOS and check to see what your internal multiplier is.
You may need a BIOS update to fully support the Wolfdale based E5200.
