"CPU Thermal Monitor" kills my performance

I realized my CPU was running at 1.5 GHz rather than my stock 2.8GHz (i5 760) so I went in the BIOS and tinkered with some of the settings.

After disabling the setting "CPU Thermal Monitor" it gave me all 2.8GHz back to my computer, but when I run CPUStab Test it tells me that my system is unstable.

How do I enable this setting without it killing my performance?

*edit* Im using a Gigabyte P55A-UD3 mobo

Restore BIOS to defaults and leave it alone.

It has been doing this ever since I built my PC (which was a few days ago) and everything was factory defaults then. I even removed the CMOS battery and its still doing the same thing

Your CPU will by default clock down when there is no task that needs the CPU power. And crank back up to full speed when something demanding happens. To check if this is really happening, open a game or something, and then check the CPU speed. If its still happening post back here.
