CPU Multiplier dropping to 4X under load?

Hi

I was running prime 95 and cpu-z then after a while the cpu multiplier and voltage dropped to 4X (800MHz) and 1.1V. it did this briefly a few times at first them it basically stayed at these settings, because of that I put it down to heat. at that point the cpu was at 49C. Before any asks, I have AMD cool n quiet disabled.

How can I stop this from happening, any setting in the BIOS?

Thanks

Leave it on, this way you'll have smaller electricity bill.

LOL! It doesn't always run at 800MHz just when it idles or when you're browsing the internet or do some non demanding tasks. CnQ has 3 P-States, first is at 4x 800 MHz, second is at 8x 1600MHz, the third and the final one is the highest one x16 3200MHz in your case.
