q8300 working on 2.0GHz

Hi ppl I have a problem with my processor intel c2q 8300. It is supposed to work on 2.5GHz but when i start CPU-Z program it says that the processor is curently working on 2.0GHz. Btw the multiplier is 6x and FSB 333. When i set the multiplier to 7.5 in BIOS and save the settings i go back to CPU-Z and it says that multiplier is 6x. Pls post what to do as soon as possible. thanks in advance

it is just the power management of OS+CPU at work in your system, try running something that utilize CPU and it will go to the nominal level.

Hi draganl, Its due to the Intel Speed Step that's been enabled in the BIOS. It automatically underclocks the Processor frequency when there is no load. Basically a power saving feature.
