Hello guys so i purchased these two parts: Amd phenom II x4 965 3.4ghz BLACK EDITION and ASROCK n68-gs3-ucc.
Im running windows 7 x64, 4gb ram @ 1600mhz, ati 4870.
So the problem here is that my cpu is running all the time at 803mhz, i ve checked other threads about the cool n quiet option but that wasnt a solution. Is there any chance to make this thing work properly ?
Thank you!

why do you mind? it will go up to 3.4GHz when it's under load, but... go into vision, and under preformance goto cpu power, and move the slider all the way left

No way, it's related to Cool n Quite, disable it in the BIOS and you'll have the full speed all the time.
Don't worry, any simple load will bump up the core clock to 3.4GHz.
If Cool n Quite doesn't work, try to see if there's a BIOS update fixes this problem.

I know in Power Saver mode [search for Power Options] sometimes the clock speed stays at the lowest to save power. See if your in that mode and go to Balanced mode if you are.

Hopefully it is this simple and you don't have a BIOS problem.

I have tried all of these guys and still its stucked at 803mhz...
I ve been thinking that maybe my motherboard doesnt support this cpu...

So there isnt any way to make this proceccor work properly even if i tried to change the psu to a better one? Im going for a new motherboard?

Well i updated the bios to the latest version, its the 1.40 if im not correct
but the problem still persists so i guess im going for a new mobo.
Thank you all for your time.

Your motherboard only supports Phenoms with a max TDP 95W you need a new motherboard as your 965BE is a 125W part.

Basically before you buy a board look up the specs of the board on the manufacturers website and check through the list of supported CPU's if your CPU is not there don't buy the board.
