Hello folks. I need to ask a question about my computer...
I have a HP Pavilion desktop with AMD Athlon 64 X2 4000+, EVGA 8800GS Superclocked, 2GB Ram (2 sticks of 1GB), and an unknown motherboard. Recently, I used CPU-Z to check my CPU got this result:

I heard that core clock for 4000+ was over 2000 MHz... but cpu-z says that its just over 1000MHz.
Has HP intentionally underclocked the CPU, or is it just an error?

Well, I just tried the most demanding task I can think of for my computer: Crysis. Unfortunately, the CPU-Z maintained 1004.4 MHz for the core clock... Help?

UPDATE: Oh, I just realized that my power options were on to power saver. I changed it to Recommended Settings the clock automatically rose to 2109 MHz... I'm glad that I figured this issue out, but what happened to those 300 Mhz?
