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:

Operating System
MS Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
AMD Phenom X4 9550 26 °C
Agena 65nm Technology
4.0GB Dual-Channel DDR2 @ 401MHz (5-5-5-18)
BIOSTAR Group N61PB-M2S (Socket AM2 ) 40 °C
Dell E151FPp (1024x768@60Hz)
SAMSUNG (1360x768@60Hz)
NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450
Hard Drives
977GB Western Digital WDC WD10 EADS-65M2B0 SCSI Disk Device (ATA)
1954GB Seagate ST2000DL 001-9VT156 SCSI Disk Device (ATA)
Optical Drives
ATAPI iHAS324 B SCSI CdRom Device
MagicISO Virtual DVD-ROM0000

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.

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.

Agreed. The CPU lowers its own clock speed and voltage when idling.
