My CPU is constantly running at 800 MHz max unless I restart or put it to sleep, wait until all the fans shut off, then wake it.
Sometimes this does not work, and restarting does not work either, so it runs at 800 MHz which is barely usable.
(HWMonitor is showing this)
It should be running at minimum 1.6 GHz, up to max of 3.40 GHz (or 3.90 GHz with Turbo)
I have:
Asus P8Z77-V PRO
Intel i7-3770
16 GB RAM (2 x 8GB)
running OSX 10.9.2 with Clover v. 2636
This happens on a fresh install, I've already tried that a few times.
