AMD Athlon XP 1600 clocking 1.06 ghz

I'm a little confused about something. I bought an Athlon XP 1600 and it only clocks at 1.06 Ghz. I thought this chip was supposed to clock at 1.4 Ghz?? I used SiSoft Sandra and BurnIn Test. I did do something stupid and forget to put heat sink compound on at first. Would that cause the speed of the processor to go down? Please help cuz I'm confused.

  1. Go into the BIOS setup and change your FSB from 100MHz to 133MHz.
