I am using Athlon x4 620 processor. I had disabled Cool n Quiet option using BIOS a long time ago. Now i tried to enable it again and it was enabled in BIOS without a problem. But when i am using various tools to check at what speed my CPU is running at, all are still showing 2600 MHz. Shouldn't it show 800 MHz? Also the CPU fan is running at the same speed so i think the feature has not been enabled.

Can anybody tell me what is the problem?

(also i had once used AMD Overdrive to overclock my processor once, but then i had reset it. Is the problem related to that somehow?)

It might be due to your Windows profile. If it is set to performance, it will keep it at the top speed more often.

Try changin it to the default profile and see if that changes anything.
