    Anyways, thanks for at least trying to help :)

    There should definately be a "Power Saving Mode" in the 1.70 UEFI. However, I doubt that setting has anything to do with your problem as it refers to IES (saving power by reducing the number of output phases). It is more likely that Intel SpeedStep is causing the downclocking.

    Those options have already been explored.
    If as according to the original poster , nothing has been changed. and ive no reason to doubt that asde from a posting of every uefi screen were left with 2 possibilities,

    Stricylry speaking there is only one.
    1. The bios doesnt have a default setting for the processor.
    1. (a) This could be because its a 2700k. and the x35 base multiplier isnt seen as non overclocked(yet).
    Current Systems:

    Asrock p67 Extreme6.............. Gigabyte EP-45 UD3 ...................... Gigabyte 73 PVM S2
    Intel i5 2500k 4.8ghz................ Intel Q8400 3.8ghz......................... Intel D820 2.8ghz
    Zalman 10x cooler.................... Coolermaster V8............................ HP cooler
    8GB Gskill ripjaw ddr3.............. 4GB Gskill PI ddr2.......................... 4GB samsung ddr2
    60GB ssd/500GB HDD .............. WD 1TB hdd.................................... Seagate 160GB hdd
    GTX 460 1GB x2 SLI ................. Msi 9600GT 512MB(died) ........... Onboard gx
    Win7 64 ,750w psu(ocz)............ Win7 64 ,520w psu,seasonic...... Win XP pro ,400w psu

    HEC 6A34 case . ....................... Jeantec R2 case............................ Packard Bell case

    hoping to upgrade to http://www.thinkgeek.com/stuff/41/habicase.shtml

    Sorry for letting you wait.

    It's definitely not the Intel SpeedStep which is causing my problem as it is disabled.

    You might be right with the "Power Saving Mode", but it doesn't change the fact that I'm missing the option to disable it.

    COuld be the reason, I'll try to downclock the CPU when I get back home. I'll let you know if it helps.
