Slow speeds on workstation PCs

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've been going under the hood on a lot of my work PCs lately, and I noticed that the Processors are running really slow. Even for a workstation PC.

What I mean is that they are not even running at the stock speeds.

For example:

The PC I'm on has an Intel E6400 which has a stock clock of 2.13GHZ. However this one is clocked a 1.594GHZ.



Is this normal?

I'm guessing this is what happens when Speedstep is enabled. Try putting it to work and then look in CPU-Z.

You have C1e or speedstep enabled. It slows your computer down when your not using it @ full load. Enable it in the bios to get full power back
