Your multiplier is only at 16! Change it in the bios and you should be back to normal.

disable speedstep and it will run at it's overclocked setting 24/7. Its a safety feature that reduces your overclock when it's not needed. Leave it on, it will help with overall temps and has no adverse effect on the overclock.

EDIT: Also I don't understand those people that get new chips but run old software, get the latest realtemp, it should should the correct load and overclock values too.

Speed step only reduces the frequency when not under heavy load... OP's clearly running prime and CPU usage is at 100% so the frequency should be at the overclocked speed not idling at 1.6. SO there's another issue here

Actually, if you look at the CPU usage in both pics, it
is at 0%. (At least in the RealTemp window). It's most likely SpeedStep like others have stated.

I think the real temp is not correct. Resource monitor says something completely different.

To OP: Were you running Prime when you took that screenshot?
EDIT: saw it in resource monitor

It wasn't speedstep.

I was running prime blend. Maxing out. At 1.6Ghz. W T F

I use RealTemp for temps, not load. Oddly Enough

Yeah.

So I found the solution not long after posting that, and pretty much fell off my chair laughing at how ridiculously simple it was.

Power Saver ... in the control panel....

Thanks anyway guys.

We should create a sticky about this 1600Mhz "phenomenon". It gets asked often!
