GPU and CPU underclocked?

I own a 5970 black edition, the core clock remains at 400mhz even under heavy load. My cpu's voltage and core speed seem a little lower than it probably should be during gameplay. Since both of these items seem to have the same problem I have begun to assume the problem must come from the motherboard but I have no idea what EXACTLY could be causing this problem.

P.S. I have also replaced the GPU and still received the same results.

Specs:
Processor: i7 930 @ 2.80ghz
PSU: CORSAIR 950w
Motherboard: P6X58D-E
GPU: 5970 BC
Resolution: 1360 x 768
RAM: CORSAIR 6gb

The i7 930 uses 'Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology' and it will run slower than 2.8GHz when not under load.

GPU - use MSI Afterburner to OC - http://event.msi.com/vga/afterburner/

I too assume that you set the RAM in the BIOS to run at its' rated speed, minimum setting is the DRAM Frequency ; I recommend manually setting ALL values {DRAM Frequency, CAS, and DRAM Voltage}.

Tried it, still doesn't work. Also i'm rather illiterate when it comes to messing with anything in the bios, not sure what you meant by all that.

Setting the minimum setting of 1600 MHz is super easy:
