Reading wrong clocks?

when validing my CPU-Z it shows the same clocks. This is my first dedicated ATI card and I guess I may just be a little lost.... but this doesn't look right. When I try and move the clock rate and test it, it will change then go back to those clock rates. I am just having tons of problems with this card. I have reinstalled drivers with the same issue. Please if anyone has had this issue or maybe can just give me a heads up of what I can do to monitor/modify settings on this card it would be great. Also just as a quick note and I'm sure I will get ***** for this, do I need to enable crossfire? Haha please be kind and helpful if possible. +Rep for all that help.

Baz is right. It's 2d power-saving technology, and it's a good thing.

Try firing up a window of Furmark or ATITool and keep that CCC OD window open while you run the 3d app. You should then see the clocks jump up to what you set it to.
