Problem with cpu speed

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just built a new computer with an ABIT KU8 mobo AMD Athlon 64 3400+, which should run at 2.2 Ghz, but when i right click My Computer it shows it's only running at 1.01 Ghz. I've checked with other programs (MBM5, CPU-Z, and some online ones) and only one shows 2.2 Ghz. What am I doing wrong here?

Edit: However every once in a while it'll display 2.2 Ghz on My Computer for a short time.

Could be AMD Cool 'n' Quiet. Disable it in the BIOS.

Try PC Wizard 06 and see if that does the same thing, I'd be surprised if it is running at that speed. Run a 100% cpu prog (prime) and see if it changes anything.

is the cool'n'quiet tech. suppose to keep it low until more power is required (like when playin a game or something)? If so I wouldn't mind as long as the performance is there when i need it. I did disable it for now and I've noticed the cpu is around 10-15 celcius degrees hotter (from 27 to about 40 degrees) so I think im gonna enable it
