Default My Phenom is only operating at 1.1Ghz?

I cannot seem to get my AMD Phenom 9500 to run properly. I installed it into the ECS A770 AM2+ Motherboard and got Vista installed. I then ran cpu-z to find it is only running at 1.1Ghz. Shouldn't the multiplier be at 11 and not 5.5? I have not tweeked anything this is all stock speeds or how it came. I cannot find anywhere in the bios to change anything but the bus speed but it should be at 200 i belive. Here is a pic... http://i139.photobucket.com/albums/q...runk/cpu-z.jpg

it could be AMD cool'n'quiet 2, which greatly throttles back the CPU when not in use to save power and reduc temps

run a cpu stress test on it then measure the clocks on CPU-Z

if it is still 1.1, then u may have a problem with the cpu....

Im new to the whole overclocking and cpu testing world. Is there a preferred software I should run for stress testing? Also should I disable the Cool and Quiet. Thanks!

Check if Cool'n'Quiet is enabled in Bios.

get prime95. Make sure to get the latest version since it allows for quadcore testing.

yes its because Cool and Quiet is on. If i start to run something and have CPU-Z up it jumps to normal. Thanks!!!
