High CPU speed reduced via BIOS

Low CPU usage after new BIOS settings (htop).

On Ubuntu the average CPU speed was around 30%, which seemed a bit over the top. After some research I found a thread, arguing that the reason might be the power management. In the BIOS I set the low power management to off.
