Amd overdrives a bit crap tbh, in your bios there should be something saying,
Cpu speed 200
can you find that on any screen in there?
if Cpu-z says its a 955BE then I'd say thats what you have, there isn't a non BE 955 that I know of
thanks man! i found it. and have successfully OC it to 3.6 (x18). afraid to go any further because of the stock cooler. thanks everyone!! i'm so happy now
