  2. it supposed to be automatic core speed when no apps used the processor drop to 1.6 as i remember this way its always core speed high=high temp=high fan rpm why its doing that cant find a solution
  3. bios setting maybe?

    theres no load at all u can see from the task manager this speed means full load why ?!!!!

    It doesn't mean it's full load, but I do suspect it has something to do with Windows 8.


    i seems like that but it doesn't ,i thought ya maybe windows 8 ,but i restated got into bios same issue :S the cpu speed doesn't drop
  10. It doesn't mean it's full load, but I do suspect it has something to do with Windows 8.
  11. In BIOS your processor isn't idle, so it will run at it's max speed.
  12. Update your BIOS. Maybe that'll fix it.
  13. latest update and loaded the default setup for it nothing :S
