Not sure but as far as a registered user it would be 4.4Ghz :

That doesn't seem like air if CoreTemp is right. Its posting 13c (55F) which is way below normal room temp. Either they are in a really cold house or that guy is using something beyond air to cool.

Try the voltage and memory timings. Temps look fine. I would lean more towards memory timings and voltages too.

Coretemp is never accurate, I have used it before and I came to the conclusion that as far as AMD goes "Everest" and SpeedFan are the only monitoring apps you can trust. Take a look.

Spec's :

550be at 3.6Ghz (freezer 64) LOAD :

What motherboard are you using? And why can't you adjust the CPU voltage?
