    i7 920 2.57GHz performance dropped to 1.57 GHz, help?




      After installing the latest drivers (from Intel's website) my PC's performance dropped significantly. After a lot of digging through drivers and utilities, I came accross the Intel processor identification utility and the picture below shows the results.


      I tried removing the drivers, however instead of removing them, device manager wants to remove the entire device. I don't want to reinstall my OS, again.


      My current build is the following:

      CPU: i7920 @ 2.57GHz

      MB: EVGA Classified X58 1366

      Memory: 6GB 1333MHz

      GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 480 SuperClocked

      PSU: 900W Apprevia

      Case: CoolerMaster HAF 932

      OS: Windows 7 64-bit
