    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.

          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
