    CPU running at higher frequency, how to reset?


    Good morning, I need your assistance.

    The other day I was in Task Manager and clicked on CPU under the performance tab, the frequency of the CPU increased. The MSI notebook is running fine, but how do I reset set the speed back to where it was? Here is a screen shot taken a few minutes ago. I entered bios and reset to defaults but nothing has changed since doing that.

    Hi, English is not my first language so maybe it's a matter of linguistic problem but I don't understand what exactly you want to reset, and to what previous state you are referring to?

    8% with 139 processes running in the background doesn't seem to me a big deal.

    Odd. It appears to be running at 3.17GHz, faster than the stated maximum speed of 2.60GHz.

    The standard clock is 2.6Ghz, but the Max Turbo Frequency is 3.50Ghz.

    It is running fine right now, I would prefer to rest the cpu back to the original frequency.

    Yes, that is definitely what is is doing.

    It used to run at 2.6 but as mentioned in the original post when I clicked on cpu in the task manager under processes the speed increased.

    @NavyLCDR I adjusted the percentage shown in the link to a marginally lower number, this had the desired effect, CPU is now running at 2.5 GHz.

    Thank you for your assistance, it is much appreciated.

    Why? Just why? What is wrong with leaving the TurboBoost on? If you are concerned about battery it usually turns that down automatically, unless you are using the High Performance power plan.
