Hello all!

I have a Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3 motherboard, of which I have just reinstalled windows vista on (about 5 times!)

The problem is I have set my mobo to overclock my CPU slightly etc, but when I get into windows, even though I can definetly confirm the settings exist, they will not appear correct.

I have installed the latest chipset drivers etc, any ideas?

Cheers, Ben

Turn off the Intel SpeedStep option in the BIOS.
This option throttles the CPU usage so when you're not using it it falls back to stock levels but comes back up again when you have need for it.
