    Default 78LMT-USB3 FX4100 throttling back

    Hi everyone

    Had this system, built for a couple of days now and everything has been great until today when i thought id overclock the cpu.

    First i thought id just stress test the cpu before hand with prime95 to see if all was well

    The cpu keeps throttling back to 3.3ish ghz and wont even hit the 3.8 turbo

    Ive disabled all the usual stuff and the thermal control but my problem is still there

    Ive updated to the latest BIOS aswell and its exactly the same as before

    Been googling around for a bit but i cant find any fix :(

    Anyone have any ideas that i could try?

    Thank you


    Sometimes it even throttles back to as low as 2.5ghz :(
