Core i7 920 at 1.59 GHz

  1. After RMA'ing my last memory, I just received it in the mail today. It correctly works. Unfortunately, my Processor has dumbed down a bit. I have no idea why this would happen.

    Motherboard: x58 SLI LE
    Processor: Core i7 920 2.66 Ghz

    By the way, this site looks like it helped people with the same problem, so I figured I could give it a shot.

    If there's any more information needed, please tell.

    The problem does not lie within my PSU, just for the record. That is brand new, too.


    EDIT: I know this isn't the right section, but when I turn on my computer, I get 2-3 beeps, and then my computer starts. I don't know if that means something is wrong, but all 6.00 Gb of my RAM seems to be working fine.

    are you talking about the throttling power saver feature as to why your 920 is running at 1.59ghz?

    With Intel chipsets 3 beeps is usually a memory error ( .) or (!) or (?)

    It beeped 2 times now. Like, always, and they are short beeps. I think it has something to do with 64k memory failing, but my memory is fine. In fact, I RMA'd and just got new parts today.

    I reset my BIOs, and my speed kicked up on my i7 to 2.7 GHz, so I guess that solved it.
