CPU goes down to 1.2GHz

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, so recently I have been noticing that I have been lagging in games for a few seconds and they it would go back to normal. So I opened HWMoniter and every time I would lag my CPU would go from 3.06 GHz to 1.2 GHz. Can you guys tell me whats happening and how to fix it. My temps are on 75 °C most of the time and my max temp is 80°C. Im using a Xeon x3480.

Does this happen in every single game you've tried? Have you tried enabling high performance mode in Windows, or resettings the CMOS?

 

Also, if I'm not mistaken, at least older Xeons used to have lower TJMax values than Intel's consumer grade chips (the temperature at which the CPU will start to throttle). Have you tried raising the CPU fan speed, or cleaning the cooler/entire PC?

How do I increase the fan speed and the cooler came in a couple of weeks ago. Im reset the CMOS and hope that it fixes it

There were a couple programs that would allow you to mess with fan speeds, but I can't remember the name of any off the top of my head. Alternatively, you should probably be able to change this in the BIOS. 

 

Either way, I think the general airflow in your PC might not be too adequate, as it seems your RAM and storage drives are getting pretty warm, so you could also maybe try to get some fans to install in your case, or try moving them around to see if you can get better results, if you've got some installed. You should be aiming for slightly positive air pressure. Intakes at the front and exhausts at the back/top is a safe bet for fan placements generally.
