Need Help

Post by Needhelp » Mon Aug 17, 2009 7:38 am

Hi there.
Ive bought an Intel Core 2 Duo e8400 3ghz, and replaced my e4500 2.2ghz with it.
But whenever I try to run anything it actually runs SLOWER than my e4500, I cheked my BIOS configuration and it said my processor speed was 1998 ghz...WTF?
I notice that when I replace my processor, my cooler fan started running much faster, Could it have something to do with the processor cooling?
Or is it something else?

PLEASE HELP.

Are your CPU settings set to auto, ie FSB, RAM. If your motherboard doesn't support 1333 FSB you might be out of luck.

Sounds like the processor is overheating so its downclocking. Reseat your heatsink.
