Re: AMD Phenom X4 965 Multiplier set to 4x
Disable AMD's Cool'N'Quiet within the BIOS of the computer. Or, go to Control Panel - Power Management - Choose High Performance Plan. It'll hit 3.8Ghz when there is quite a bit of CPU usage, but when the CPU power is not needed, it'll "downclock" the CPU. Nothing harmful. If you want to verify it, download Prime95, and open CPU-Z then run Prime95. You'll see the speeds change.
