CPUZ Reading Cpu Clock Speed Slower Than Stock

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

Just fiddling round with my work computer and i have a phenom 555 in the machine. the stock of that chip is 3.1ghz but cpuz is reading it as 800mhz up to 2ghz. does This cpu or my mainboard M4n68T-m-v2 have some sort of throttling when not under load,

i thought only intel had that?
any help would be highly apprecitaed.
any more info on build just ask.

That would be the AMD Cool ' n Quiet feature I'm pretty sure. You can disable in in the BIOS by just selecting "Disable".

Yeah that is just Cool 'n Quiet kicking in. At full load it'll clock to where it is supposed to be. It is nothing to worry about, you can disable it if you want but there is no real reason to.
