  1. Alright.. i just decided to let " CPU-Z " get my system specs and tell me how everything is going.. and i noticed somthing REALLY messed up. My Q6600 Quadcore is running at 1600mhz instead of 2400mhz stock?? AND my 800mhz ram seems to be running at HALF speed?? Whats going on here.. i NEVER touched any bios settings on my EVGA nForce 680i mobo, never overclocked, never did ANYTHING to it yet. Can someone tell me why it might have done this and what settings i can safely change in the bios to set it back to normal?? ( I know my bios well and i can change next to anything you tell me. ) Help is appreciated! Heres the readouts.

    Looks like you may have speedstep on in bios, will change your multiplier, depending on how much power you need, its a power saving issue. Its also possible that you changed the multiplier yourself.
