As you can see the "Core Speed" is only 1600MHz but the "Specification" of this processor shows 2.40GHz.

Is there something wrong?

Is that normal?

Sounds like some sort of CPU throttling mechanism is in place. If you run something intensive the speed should up itself automatically and fall again when idle.

Looks like you have it under clocked make sure ur mother board doesnt have an automatic tinkering program that play around with your cpu speed, but then again ur motherboard shouldnt be underclocking it. Just go into your bios and set the clock speed to 2.40ghz.
