several possibilities although my first thought was "SpeedStep" but i think that only applies to mobile processors. perhaps your processor has been underclocked, perhaps you have DDR266 memory :S which would roughly work out to 1.8ghz with your FSB being underclocked to the memory's speed

well, I have DDR300 memory, and for the times I had my comp before the motherboard got replaced, it worked at 2.8ghz, now it goes at only 1.8ghz. Idk, what are my options...

Hey guys, I got a question, recently, I brought my comp to gets its motherboard replaced, anyways, before I did that, the fans on the computer would be pretty quiet, but when they replaced it, the are going full blast. Here are the temps of the case(26 degrees celecius) and the CPU(37 degrees celsius). this is driving me insane
I had a problem with my cpu fan running at full speed with a 4-wire connector going to the mboard...i had to cut one of the wires..(blue i think) and now it runs at its proper speed...was 4000 rpm and went to 1700 rpm...

u may have high volume /low quality fans that can be very noisey...upgrading your fans are cheap...can u list all your fans? and we can suggest some quieter ones.
