Question about Dell Optiplex GX280 (99301) Motherboard
Right-click [My Computer]
The [General] tab has the PC specs at the bottom.
Note the CPU model identifier (example: Intel 2 6400 @ 2.13GHz)
Now find the correct specs for that CPU (through Google?)
If the eral] tab shows a higher CPU clock speed, the CPU is overclocked.
You can change the clock speed in the BIOS setup.
I hope this answers your question.

No thermal grease or old dry thermal grease and a dust and debris filled heatsink is your most likely cause of this problem. Dell isn't very overclocker friendly...it is more likely a lack of maintenance in blowing the dust out of the case on a regular basis. Take the case panels off and use dry compressed air to blow the system out and clean it thoroughly. The heatsink needs to be removed and the hold down latch on the processor needs to be removed and the heatsink and processor need to be wiped clean and a new thin layer of thermal grease applied to the processor. Put the system back together and fire it up.
