CPU speed drastically reduced

  1. I have noticed the speed of my computer reduce drastically as of late. I assumed just the regular abusive of the hard drive and cluttering of windows and what not. But I checked SiSoftware and its posting my Cpu as a Core 2 rather than a Core 2 Duo.. And I checked my system settings and it is also posting my Cpu as a core 2 rather than a core 2 Duo. which If I remember correctly it always did before. Its now Intel Core 2 CPU 6600 @ 2.4 when i could have sworn it use to say Intel core 2 duo 6600 @ 2.4 X 2. I could be wrong. But It is defiantly a lot slower and SiSoftware is only detecting a core 2 processor. Also, my Cpu is running extremely Hot. about 70 degrees C. and thats pretty much Idle, With out running any load on the Cpu. The Fans are running and there is plenty of ventilation I have 4 fans cycling air into and out of the machine.

    Anyone Have Any Ideas?
