Hello guys!

To start off, I bought this PC from offer up for my brother and my nightmares
started that day!

Here's the specs for this PC that I can remember. (I am traveling for work right now)
AMD 8350FX
MSI 970 Gaming motherboard
16GB ram

I tried everything from youtube and forums.. ( Not a total noob )
I just want to figure out if my motherboard or cpu is fried to <Mod Edit>.
The CPU is stuck at 1.44ghz idle or gaming or browsing. SLOW!!
  • Max performance power settings.
  • Slow mode on the motherboard is switched off.
  • My brother checked and updated the bios. (Flashed)
  • I also messed with the bios settings, listening from youtubers/forums still 1.44ghz
What is weird is I downloaded an overclock app, if I put it on x7 multiplier
the CPU goes up to 3-4ghz but its still slow. I dont know what to do anymore
I spent $500 for this and IM STUCK!

I think its running the stock CPU cooler.
and yes, I remember thats what I downloaded
to make my CPU on x7 multiplier and it goes
up to 3-4ghz, otherwise its just DEAD stuck
at 1.44ghz.
