Phenom X4 underclocked

Hi folks, i have a ASRock N68C-S UCC updated with the lated bios, and for some reason my AMD Phenom II X4 955 @ 3200 MHz only runs at 800MHz, i have tried to sort it but no luck. It means i have to overclock in order to meet the speed which it should be.

Pls help.

Under light load (or no load) some cpu's do that have you tried running something like prime95, or loading up the cpu?

Cpu-z and gpu-z both free and useful

I have not found a solution, i am happy with it now as i am used to it. I know it can be annoying, but it has grown on me, as it runs fine overclocked to factory setting.
