I am working on an Asus P5QPL-AM motherboard that is using AMI v02.61 BIOS and has an Intel E6300 that should run at 2.8 GHz installed on it. CPU-Z as well as a number of other test software report that the core speed is only around 1.6 GHz and varies slightly from second to second. I believe that this might be a power saving measure but I want the full 2.8 GHz from the CPU. What should I look for in the some what restrictive BIOS? Please offer some suggestions.
