AMD FX4130 running downcloked.

I have a gigabyte motherboard - gigabyte ga-78lmt-s2pt. Installed processor is amd fx 4130, quad core with 3.8 ghz clock speed. but I'm getting 2.8ghz rigidly. cool & quite is already off from the bios. Please suggest me what to do to get the proper clock speed.

what I already checked

1. disabling c1 & c6 states of the cpu

2. tried several stress tools & burn test applications

3. manual overclock by gigabyte easytune tool

4. the motherboard showing 125w is used for the processor.

please exclude these points in your suggestion. Thanks in advance.

Re: AMD FX4130 running downcloked.

i was running with the same problem it was around the omega driver launch, that it started

i think it was a windows 8.1 update for some reason changed the power plan to "Power saver "  because i dont remember to have change it
i changed it back to balanced and problem solved
