I'm asking this question for my older brother since both of us are stumped. In his BIOS he's set the CPU frequency to 3.08 GHz. He saves the settings, restarts the computer, opens up CPU-Z and CoreTemp and they both say that his processor's frequency is set to 2.2GHz. What's the problem here? Could we assume it's 3.08 and just listen to the BIOS?
