    No it should not this lowers CPU speed to allow the fan's to spin at a lower rate.

    I would expect that CPU-Z is bugged and i doubt your CPU is running at such a low speed.
    Try another program to monitor it, perhaps Everest.

    PSU maybe? because you said unplugging and replugging CPU Power plug fixed the problem temporarily? Have you tried another PSU? That's probably where I start looking if I was you. Why your games run faster while your cpu is running much slower is beyond my understanding though.

    Re: AMD Athlon X2 3800+ Speed Problem

    So lets get this straight:

    Its shows at under 700 mghz in Windows and also in CPU-Z?

    But AMD clock shows it as 2.4?

    Re: AMD Athlon X2 3800+ Speed Problem

    How much has this been upgraded from when you bought it?

    CpuZ is showing your bus speed at 69.9mhz there's your problem.
    Could be CpuZ not reading the motherboard info correctly. If so updateing the BIOS might fix it.

    However as windows is also showing it at such low speeds I'm wondering if the motherbard has a problem. (mabe not getting enough power or has been damaged)

    If you reset to stock speeds does it show the info correctly?

    Re: AMD Athlon X2 3800+ Speed Problem

    The stock fsb speed on that cpu is 200mhz

    According to CpuZ the numbers are correct
    69.9 x10 = 698.6 (the fsb speed is rounded up)

    To get 2.433ghz then the FSB should be reading 243.3mhz
    I'm not sure what the HTT thing is . . .

    intresting post here on overclocking an AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ Windsor
    put 3 volts to the cpu
    4 volts to the ram
    raise the fsb to 300
    drop HTT to 1x
    3 volts over the cpu seem rather high

    Looking at your numbers your htt is at x5 you need to drop that as it does not like going over 1000mhz apparently

    For games issue you need to install Dual-Core Optimizer from AMD website.
