    [Reply to locked topic]Low CPU speed, shows normal in safe mode


      Hi guys,

      we've been facing the issue described in this topic Low CPU speed, shows normal in safe mode  for quite a while. The topic is locked an unsolved. We found a solution and wanted to share


      The issue regards CPU running at bad frequency (0.8ghz instead of 3.5). The OP had a quite similar mobo and CPU. The involved part is not the CPU but the motherboard. A recent BIOS update (july 2016) enables by default a parameter named "Intel Adaptive Thermal Monitor". It seems not to be supported correctly and forces the CPU to run at 0.8ghz. Disabling it fixes the problem. More info here : MSI USA - Online Technical Support FAQ


      Hope that helps, cheers guys
