I have an i5-3570k, and I was fine with it - until now.
You know how these CPUs underclock themselves to save energy? Yes, well mine stays at that clock (around 1608 MHz according to CPU-Z) all the time.
Even when I'm playing games or running Cinebench, it stays like that. Heat isn't the problem, it never goes above 40 degrees with my air cooler.
I went into the BIOS and disabled the Intel SpeedStep thing - it still stays underclocked. I've refleashed the BIOS, erasing my overclock, still it continues.
Does anyone please have any advice?
