Help with CPUZ!! Please!!



I have an intel core i5 2500k, it's supposed to run at 3.30GHz but CPUz is saying that the core speed is 1596Mhz? Is there something that I'm doing wrong, I was told to switch the multiplier to 33 but I really don't see it in the bios ssetting of my mobo. Can someone help me with this?


Also I look at the CPUZ and the core speed sometimes jumps to 3500MHz with the multiplier at x40.0, what is causing this? Please help, very important to me.

More about help cpuz please
  1. It's probably an energy saving feature in the BIOS. The CPU is slowed down if there's no need to use it at full speed. When you put load on it it gets to work hence the speed spikes.

    What motherboard do you have?

    Really? Ever heard of Speedstep technology? It's only been around for what 7yrs or so?

    Do you really need 3500mhz to read your email?
