    6700k drops to 0.8ghz




      My 6700k recently droped/locked to 0.8ghz on boot, so I have to enter bios and reset to default - which fixes it for a while until next boot some days later or the day after. Cpu voltage seems to drop also from 1.200 to 0.800ish


      I did run the Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool after reset to default and it passed the test.


      The CPU, CPU cooler, MB and DDR are all new, bought in December 2016.
