my cpu is at 1200mhz and is thermal throttling at low temps

for a week ago i got a new gpu,case,powersupply i moved the motherboard from the old case into the new one, so for some reason the cpu has become stupid and is running at 1.2ghz and my performance is pretty bad i cant find anything on the internet about how to fix it

 

ive updated bios and updated the drivers for the cpu but it hasnt worked https://drive.google.com/open?id=1WSagvpWNXZ5Jn2O8Fmz0uCn0Wv6pxV4Z it says its thermal throttling wich i find wierd cus it worked fine before i switched case and componements

I would redo your cooling system/thermal paste. If it worked before the move, it should work after the move. Unless you jarred or disturbed the cooling fan or did not reinstall it correctly.

"Should be" is not the answer. It is either installed correctly, or not.

When you made the move, did you remove the cooling system, or leave it in place?

If you removed it, you had to reinstall it.

If you did not remove it, then you have have caused the the cooling system to become unseated slightly.

 

Whatever the case, this is not an Intel problem, as you stated it was working correctly before you moved the board.

 

You may also want to try using the old power supply and old graphics as a test. If the system returns to normal, then your new power supply or graphics are the cause.

it should be installed correctly and it says that the temps is low so could it be a problem with something else than cooling?

Run iPDT, and see if it says throttling is actually due to thermals. Also, after a change like this, you should remove and reseat everything, DIMMs and processor included.
