hello all!

i recently went and picked myself up a AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz 4 x 512KB. previously i was sporting a dual core 2.8GHz AMD which rated at like 6.4 on the windows rating for my system, i was expecting to see a pretty big leap in to the mid 7's when i re-rated my computer for the cpu but it dropped to a 3.7!!! any one know what is going on?

I think AMD Cool'n'Quiet is on. Try disabling it in the BIOS if you can. Alternatively, set the power plan to "High Performance" in Control Panel>Hardware and Sound>Power Options.
