K M A N, to test this theory, download Prime95 and check the multiplier and clock speed while doing a torture test. If under load it's still the same as before, then we'll have to look for a different solution.
yes meithan its called cool n quiet for amd, tho.
kman what is the stock multiplier for your cpu? if its 11 i bet apokalipse is right and you just have some sort of fail safe turned on.
also, what voltage are you applying to the cpu?and what speed is your ram (i.e. stock speed and what is it set to in bios).
