thanks for ur reply.
im already using the performance power plan and in the advance settings, processor power management i only have the option for cooling. no min/ max processor state. i dont think that option has been there since i upgraded from my athlon II x4 640.
i read that if i enabled cool n quiet again then this option would apear again but it does'nt.
it does'nt clock down when system has been idle for a short while. its when its been idle for hours. it hasnt done it yet today and pc has been idle for a good few hours

Sorry I am unable to help then.
But if it clocks back up when under load then I would see this as a good feature. I use it with my PC, when I'm only browsing the net my clock speed is half of the max which I have no problems with and when I need the speed it automatically clocks to max in less than a second.

You Disable cool and Quiet in the Bios

Not from the Opereating system

Go into the Bios look up the Cpu side see if cool and quiet is enabled if it is then disable it and no more throttling down

Yes I did read that but sometimes not all the times but sometimes you could have disabled it and not saved the settings , It happens if that isn't the reason maybe your board is having issues with the controller
