Default Q6600 reported at 100mhz


I'm new here and i just setup 1 of my old computers to run prime95 . It shows my Intel Q6600 @ 2.66GHZ to be running at 100 MHZ on the CPU page and the benchmark pages. I know its running at 2.66 GHZ cause i have cpuid and core temp running on it and they report it correctly. Will that affect the speed of Prime95? I also have an I7-4770k @3.5 GHZ showing correctly on the cpu and benchmark pages.

Thank you,

In your local.txt file (in the prime95 directory), what do you have for the lines below?

Nope. It is purely informational.
