"Cool'n'Quiet is a CPU speed throttling and power saving technology introduced by AMD with their Athlon 64 processor line. It works by reducing the processor's clock rate and voltage when the processor is idle. The aim of this technology is to reduce overall power consumption and lower heat generation, allowing for slower (thus quieter) cooling fan operation.
This means, when you need full processor power, your processor WILL USE FULL POWER.
When you don't need it (example running light applications) the processor will downclock itself.
Nothing wrong with your processor, just a feature that powersaves when fullpower isnt needed.
It's a pretty decent feature if you want to lower power consumtion.
