AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 965 Processor (4 CPUs), ~800MHz

What I put in bold seems to be your problem. Something is throttling your processor speed like cool&quiet, what you need to do is go to control panel then power options and change your power scheme to high performance or gaming performance depending upon the machine. I hope this helps.

If you happen to have a Gigabyte motherboard, there was a BIOS issue with some of them that it was dividing the clock speed amongst the 4 cores of a X4 965 processor. Instead of running at 3200MHz, it was running at 3200/4=800MHz. A BIOS update fixed this for me. If you're not using a Gigabyte board, it could still be a BIOS issue and it might be worth updating your BIOS, assuming that the settings in the current BIOS aren't simply wrong. Check the multipliers that it's using. It should look something like 200MHz bus and 16x clock multiplier.
