Unhappy Cool n Quiet with Asus A8N-E / AMD Venice does not work

Hi there

I built a computer consisting of an ASUS mainboard A8N-E and an AMD Athlon 64 Venice 3000+ (939 socket).
But I can't get the Cool n Quiet function running. The processor runs all the time at 1800 MHz. I checked it with various programs (like CPU-Z, etc.).
I have Win XP (32 bit version), SP2 and all latest patches installed.
What I did:
- enabled Cool n Quiet in BIOS
- updated the BIOS to the latest (final) version 1004
- installed the Cool n Quiet driver first from CD, because it did not work then from,00.html
- set the Power Schemes to Minimal Power Management

=> The processor runs all the time at 1800 MHz, even if it's basically idle.

What the heck is wrong?
Anybody any idea?

It is supposed to run at 1.8 ghz. What do you think it should be?

Well, 1.8 GHz is the nominal speed - correct. But if Cool n Quiet kicks in, then it should go down to 800 MHz or so.
