    Okay, so now this happened:

    And as soon as I pull out the powerplug it goes down to, not around 800 MHz, but around 1700 MHz. Windows 8 sure is a strange thing... Do any of you guys know if this is a regular behaviour?

    Yes it's normal.
    The (modern) CPU switches automatically frequencies: when used or higher power plan / plugged in it set's itself higher. When idle it sets to lower frequency.

    That would happen in ANY decent OS not just Win8.

    I see your WEI is fixed...
