Vista CPU Throttling?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I ran CPU-Z, and it showed my clock speed as 1.3Ghz...I think I heard something about Vista throttling CPU speeds and how to get rid of it, but I can't remember how. Can't find any related Services entries. Help?

You have to disable it in the BIOs. It has nothing to do with vista.

I forget what the exact name for AMD CPUs is though.

Why would it be in the BIOS? It didn't do this when I had XP installed. =/

Besides, I've had Cool n' Quiet turned off as long as I've owned this board.
