I bought my i7 processor and dx58so motherboard 4 months back , it was all working fine untill i updated my bios.
Once i updated my bios, the processor automatically enabled Intel SpeedStep® Technology. When i disabled it,My computer failed to start, after repeated attempt when it started , i noticed that whenever i started a heavy job my processor seed gets upto 2.97 GHZ , my bus speed has increased to 135 from default 133 and the multiplier keeps on switching itself (maximum it goes to 22). It seems that my system has been overclocked, but i don't want my system like this, i need it to run on 2.67 GHz only as whenever i start a heavy program my core temperatures increases upto 80 degrees celcius.
Well, my bios is the latest one .... actually the problem started when i had updated my bios as it asked for updation of bios while installing IDCC in windows 7....I have switched to balance mode let me see whether the problem resolves or not..
