    Logitech and Creative still same, and so is the incorrect processor speed.

    Afterburner still installed.

    "Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2500K CPU @ 3.30GHz, 3601 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)"

    That shows your processor is running below spec, which automatically means things are not right in the bios. Did you set Optimized Defaults and save, in it yet?

    And as said, Creative is not updated yet either. They are quite notorious when it comes to drivers. If you can't find an update, I'd pull the card from the machine and use onboard audio until things are stable. Once you have a stable platform, then you can easily see if Creative card/drivers are the cause when re-adding.

    Yup i had loaded optimized defaults ! that's why turbo boost got on again.

    Turned it off and now you can see changes in processor speed.

    You are true about creative. Will have to dump the card sooner or later

    Everything is running fine now !

    Seems that APC UPS software was the culprit !

    Turned on the turbo boost also !

    Thanks again Gman !

    You're welcome. How I do things basically boils down to this - Make sure all drivers are latest, make sure hardware is set right. If things still aren't well, then I immediately look at any software that isn't common to most other people.

    Your UPS immediately jumped out at me, so of course, I had to mention it.

    You're welcome and best of future luck with the system.
