Intel i5-2500 @3.30ghz very poor benchmark perfomance (1,60Ghz) - Help please!

Hi people.
I am experiencing this problem with my processor.
After a fresh Windows 7 Ultima 64 installation it started to work really slow.
Ive made tests and the results were very bad (I let my benchmark results in the following images).





I also tested it on Ubuntu and the results were the following:

The Windows experience gives me a 5.6 out of 7.9.
The curious thing is the i checked on my BIOS and frecuency is 3,302 GHZ for all the cores.

Any ideas? This is really frustrating ... thanks in advance!

  1. Huh? It's an i5-2500 and the program calls it a Celeron M 1.5? That's messed up..
    I am biased to trust the bios :)
    But I would reseat and new thermal paste just to make sure thats not the issue...
  2. Thanks man, Ill just try that.
