CPU i7 980X displayed at 2.653 Mhz Tags: CPUs Intel i7 Last response: August 23, 2010 11:50 AM in CPUs Share rallyboy August 23, 2010 9:31:52 AM Hi guys. I was just wondering why my CPU is displayed at 2.653MHz when it should be at 3.33 Ghz. Not only CPUz displays it at 2.65, but Belarc Advisor and the bios. Any advice?

Otherwise it's not too difficult to change the multiplier back up to 25. rallyboy August 23, 2010 10:25:41 AM Any advice what I could do? Can't find your answer ? Ask !

Speedstep downclocks your CPU to a lower speed if it's doing nothing. Lower speed means lower power consumption. You have a problem if the clocks never go up if you're doing something cpu heavy.
