    CPU Core speed locked around 800 MHz?


    https://snag.gy/DQ6zRN.jpg

    Hello! I recently reset my computer because I noticed it was getting slow, and even after a clean install and after updating all of the drivers it was still slow, and I decided to look around and see if I could identify the problem. I think I did. My currently installed processor is an AMD Phenom II X4 965 Processor, which SHOULD run at around 3400 MHz, but as you can see it is locked at around 800? I've looked everywhere and I can't find an issue. I'm running on a desktop PC my cousin built, so I'm not super tech savvy when it comes to hardware. Help?

    What does it show in BIOS Setup?

    I think the CPUZ number is bogus.

    I think CPU-Z is miss-reading your info and your core speed x your multiplier is your actual speed. 805 x 4 = 3220 Mhz.

    Try going into the BIOS and have a look at the info there ,also what does Windows say when you right click 'My Computer' and look at the properties?

    Also Task Manager, Performance tab, click on CPU. What does it say for speed?
