That shouldnt be there, take a screen shot, if you dont mind?...2.78ghz might be what its running at the moment, you might have the power saver option on..

There's no official option to change cpu speed. Your processor has SpeedStep technology. Basically, your computer ups the speed when you need it and slows down when you dont.

You've gotta change it to Minimal Power Options, and have the Intel drivers installed.
