Cant figure it out

My BIOS says my CPU is clocked at 2200 mhz (11.5x multiplier) Speccy, & CPU ID, say im running at 1105 mhz 5.5x multiplier. I dont even have a 5.5x multiplier option in my bios. Not sure why it is doing this. This is what ive got:

MS Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1

Any help would be greatly appreciated. kool and quirt is turned off. thats one of the first things I turn off. Cant even mess with the multipliers if you dont. Also I ran CPU speed Test Pro just to see what it says. Today I am running at 2403mhz. but according to CPU ID I am running at 1167mhz.

  1. Cool and quiet is a feature that is running that downclocks the processor when its idle if you want to check disable cool and quiet in the bios.
  2. Agreed. The CPU lowers its own clock speed and voltage when idling.
  3. i went with the "much bigger issue" and got me a new board. Got a gigabyte MA74GM-S2. Solved the problem and brought my windows experienc from a 4.8 to a 5.9. thank you for all your help
