I would suggest running the Intel® Processor Diagnostic Tool (http://www.intel.com/support/processors/sb/CS-031726.htm) just to check the processor overall health.
Please check the BIOS settings and add a picture of the processor Settings so that I can take a look.
Hi, thanks for your reply I got it running at its normal frequancy again. Not sure how this worked but I switched the jumper to LN2 mode, booted windows up and it was running at stock speed once again. Once I changed it back it continued to run at its stock speed and ramp up under load. ☺
