C2D E7500 using only 2.4 GHz at full load instead of 2.93GHz Tags: CPUs Last response: January 15, 2013 5:05 AM in CPUs Share superific6 January 14, 2013 10:18:32 AM Guys I'm having a problem here. My C2D can only run at 2.4 GHz instead of 2.93GHz. I have tried several CPU stress tests and the maximum clock speed is only 2.4 GHz. Can anyone help me to fix this so that my processor can run at 2.93GHz again? Here are my specs: Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 @ 2.93GHz Sapphire Radeon HD 7750 1GB GDDR5 4GB DDR2 RAM @ 800MHz Western Digital 160GB HDD Gigabyte GA-G31M-ES2L Motherboard Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.
