Cpu freq to high?

Was looking around on forums here decided to dl cpuz / gpuz. I loaded the program and realized it read single channel. So i fixed the ram (turned out the ram was in the wrong slot). Then i re ran cpuz and now it says dual channel like its suppose to.

I reran the validator on cpuz
(http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=627732) i think this link should work.
Says the cpu freq is "Freq : 803.65 MHz (200.91 * 4)" with the 803.65 MHz in red text. Could someone steer me in to the right direction as to what this means. Is that something i need to worry about or can i adjust something?

It wasnt red before i switched the ram if i remember right.

I looked on their site and the few links it found that explained how to read it (for an older verson that didnt have cpu freq on the program)

    Well whats the CPU?

    Ill just paste the info in link here.

  3. After looking around more seems its actully very low not even half of what alot of others are.
  4. It's called AMD Cool 'n Quiet, when the system is in a idle state or a low cpu consuming application it will underclock itself for :
    1. Less heat production
    2. Less Energy Consumption
    You can turn it off in the BIOS if it bothers you, but I wouldn't know why.
    It could also be a specific core which isnt in use and therefore underclocked, no need to worry about it if everything runs smooth.
