comment Why is my CPU slowing down? (power settings and temperature are OK)
Thanks, as long as the CPU is hitting top speed when I need it to that's fine. It seems the LatencyMon figure is just a guess averaged from the two possible clock speeds. I did a few CPU-intensive things with RealTemp on and it did show the speed going up to 2.80GHz so seems all is well.

Just realised I have been using the built-in drivers for my mouse and keyboard so installing the proprietary ones and we'll see if that makes a difference...

Thanks, I hope it isn't the BIOS though because the one this machine has is terrible - wouldn't let me boot from a disk when I was trying to install a fresh OS so goodness knows how easy updating it would be.
