@br3nd064 - I had been toying with Speedstep, but with C1E also disabled it has given me a steady 2.83 GHz so I thank you greatly for the help.Perhaps you could give a brief exp of what it is/does?Ill Google it either way.
Being that it seems my CPU speed is solved, any help on RAM would be great. Ive tried manually setting the speed to 1066 and adjusting voltage to manufacturers specs but the mobo gives a memory error and overclock failure.
