Hey, So, this isn't a big problem, but my core i5 2500k will occasionally drop to 1.6ghz and hang there for a while. It seems like the equivalent of amd's cool and quiet. (I just switched from an amd rig) I found the setting, it's intel speedstep. I disabled it, but it doesn't take. it still goes to 1.6 at times. really frustrating because sometimes it causes instabilities with programs being slow and such. Is there a setting I missed?
