No, that is not right for the NB (not actually a north bridge but HyperTransport Link) frequency. The problem is that the power monitor may not be properly updated for the 790fx (or series) of chipsets. I make that assumption on the fact that you are running the phenom in a new motherboard ... though you do not list your specifications. I believe that the northbridge (HT link frequency) runs at a frequency lower than the CPU, though it was expected to run at the same speed as the CPU.
