      This CPU has advanced SpeedStep technology.

      As such you should see the speed vary.

        I’ve seen that never show what it was. My favorite is when it’s the HDD having trouble and Windows goes to 100% in the task manage. The users try everything you may have read about except change the HDD.

        This one is easy to spot if you know what to look for. Go get SPECCY (see Google) and look at the SMART VALUE 01 and 07 raw values. If either is in the thousands you have found a very common cause.

      Power Option

      I think you have changed the Windows power from “Balanced” to “High performance”. The Windows high power performance might be the reason where the CPU would be forced to run at constant full speed. So, go to the power setting and change it to balanced.
