Trying to figure this 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:

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
NVIDIA High Definition Audio

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Kool and Quiet is off. I ran CPU speed test pro and it said that I am running at 2403mhz. CPU z says I am running at 1167Mhz. I dont know. It just seems weird to me. I have been farting around with computers for a while and have never run into this before.

  1. Sounds like it's just downclocking to save power at idle.

    Try running Prime95 or something and then open CPUZ. Or, you could use RealTemp which will show the real-time CPU speed. CPUZ seems to be slow to update (if it does at all) when CPU speed changes. No idea why.
  2. The CPUid will state what the processor is currently running at, which doesn't always equal the maximum number (I'm going purely based off of my Intel i7-930 here). Run Prime95 windowed see if the number changes to your maximum.

    It sounds like cool n quiet isn't really disabled.

    as the others have suggested, try running Prime95 to see if the numbers go back to normal. If they don't, there is a much larger issue at play. But let us know how that goes first.
  4. 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
