Windows 7: Low FPS in games?

Windows Ultimate 7 64 bit

I'd like to say thanks to everyone taking the time to helping figure out what's going loopy in my system, and hopefully we can get to the bottom of it

Didn't notice that but it might be Speed Step at play.

Yeah, the CPU is in the power saving mode... Enhanced Intel SpeedStep® Technology - IntelĀ® Coreā„¢2 Quad Processor Q8300 (4M Cache, 2.50 GHz, 1333 MHz FSB) with SPEC Code(s) SLB5W, SLGUR. If he puts a load on the processor it should run at full speed.

As you said, the processor is running around 2gig, at full power it should be at 2.5gig.

Run WoW in windowed mode and see what the CPU speed gets to. (this way the CPU will continue at full speed when you look at CPUID)

you should get 60fps in wow with max settings with this setup. I don't know about the GPU as I have a different one, but you still would get way higher than 10-20fps...

I also see that in your screenshot from GPU-Z, SLI is disabled. you said in your first post that you had 2 graphics cards. you should be running them in SLI. Something is not set up right. This might be changeable in the Nvidia control panel.

I have the same board only with a E8400 and Speed Step is what CPUID is reporting.
It's a a good idea to follow Thorsons suggestion about Wow.
Also you need to go into Nvidia control panel and enable SLI as suggested already.
Then see how your system preforms. Fabe

Win7 Home Premium 64x

See if you have Power Gear Hybrid since your board is an Asus. I don't know if you will have this, but the setting in here might be set back in CPU max processing speed. (you might also have Extreme turbo mode for OC'ing)
