If you don't have good stable voltages, your processor frequency won't change, the processor will just crash. Since the OP didn't mention any crashing, his voltages are fine.
What ever gave you that idea? How do you think C1 and C1E are implemented? Never heard of VR capacitors going bad? I take it you never heard of overclocking either. It's a simple test worth checking and can show whether the voltage is fluctuating or sagging out of spec. Doesn't cost a thing but a few minutes and can rule out power problems. Beats guessing at something you can't see.

And I agree, you won't see it in CPU-Z. Half of it doesn't work anyway. That's why I said use HWiNFO64 (for 64-bit OS). It's a MUCH better monitor. It even has a core graph that will show the speed changes with the voltage change for those of you that need pictures.

Thanks for all the replys guys, I will run the Suggested Programs when i get home.

The Core Drop is not just listed within Cpu Id though it shows up sometimes in WEI.

My Motherboard is Locked So Overclocking and Voltage Changes are a No-no But it does help stop temptation.

And My motherboard Specifically Lists the E7600 as Being Compatible so i hope it is.


Thanks again Everyone i will, as i say, Run the tests again and post the results Here.

Yes I have heard of overclocking - my rig is overclocked and I know something about it, a bit more than you it appears. You have to increase the core voltage sometimes to make the overclock stable, not to increase the processor frequency.

You are right, The next step down for this processor is 2.3 GHz.
