post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello guys, i have Fx 6300 3.5Gh and gt 430 , asus m5a78l-m lx plus , today i ran prime95 and i noticed that the cpu doesn't reach its default frequency (3.5Gh) it reaches 3.5 then it drops to 3.1 on full load , why i'm having this problem? and if its caused by the MotherBoard can you suggest me to a better MotherBoard and thanx
