1.Update BIOS​ or at least reset it to defaults.

2.Reset your current power plan to default settings and use normal or high performance mode.

3.What do you mean by "Slow mode"?

4.Run HWinfo64>sensors only>Logging start and play for 15-20 min. I want to see that log

Ok so i did update my bios and all settings are set to defualt and Slow mode is a little switch on the motherboard for intense overclockers !

Look it up switching it off fixed the problem for 2 minutes and it got back again easily ! I Will try that test now

Make sure in the sys bios settings all is on auto and CPU temperature is reasonable under load (~60C).

.What do you mean by "Slow mode"???

1.Check CPU temperature and CPU FAN speed

2.Reinstall your CPU in motherboard

3. Check your current power plan>power plan setup>additional power plan settings>CPU power management>Max CPU state must be 100%

4.Uninstall any software for CPU and system tweaking (AMD Overdrive and any others)

Re: AMD FX-8320 always at 1400MHz under load

I had the Same issue with FX9590, I figured out that it was a Combination of 3 thinks. Board was read Memory (XMP) wrong CPU voltage (to low) Instable and finally High Temps even with liquide cooling. I solved it set Ram frequenze manually adjusted voltage and run burn in test untill spikes get removed as far possible. Enshure CPU not goes over 60degrees. Above it will regulate you down how much depends on settings and Temperature expected. In my xtreem chase voltage was dropping to 0.8V at the same time clocks are falling. I quess you have the same issue.

Re: AMD FX-8320 always at 1400MHz under load

Windows does not understand the BIOS, in the power supply of the processor

bios>

cool&quet - off

turbo core - auto

setup software P-state limit - off

windows>

Power mode high capacity
