Can anyone give me some advice on what im doing wrong?
i have recently installed the phenom x4 955 cpu on my asus m2n-sli deluxe board
but i cant get programs like cpu-z and other cpu temp montors all report that each core is only running at 800 x 2?

I have the latest bios update for mobo 5001 and have set the volt to 1.25 and the multi x 16 the bios and reports that its a 3.2 cpu and have cleared the cmos to
when i right click on my comp in windows for info it displays the cpu as 3.2 but gives the cpu a 3.7 overall score i had x2 6400 in before and it indexed at 5.9

but these software utils dont see it as this and reports each core as 800 x 2, i didnt re-insall window 7 enterprise (64bit) after installin new cpu, but i dont think that should be a problem?

i know its running slower as encoding avis take longer than before
what benchmarking tools are easy to use i have used si sandra, and after i run the benchmarking didnt know if the score was good or bad, is there any tools that will let me know what the cpu is running at?
I installed this on the advice of this post

Any advice would be most gratefully received

1.25 voltage for the 955 unless a C3 is too low maybe.
