CPU speed

is there any particular settings about CPU speed on the server type below

Vendor=HP
Model=ProLiant DL380 G7

think these are 2 cpu's + quad core processors

cat /proc/cpuinfo
processor : 0
vendor_id : GenuineIntel
cpu family : 6
model : 44
model name : Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5620 @ 2.40GHz

HP said to change the speed in BIOS from C6 to C3 .

I am not sure why and wanted to understand .

thanks

Have you considered asking the person who
told you this ("HP") what he meant? Some of
us can't remember all the details of the
original conversation.

Re: CPU speed

well as funny as it may sound , that came to our hardware tech team from HP SME and they do not tell you why / what or provide any justification, they just fixed the server that crashed apparently because of incorrect cpu speed and asked to reproduce solution on other assets also , period.
