My System Specs

Default

If the prime95 test still shows a drop in frequency and temperatures are good, then you could need a bios update. I had similair issue with my fx-6100 and gigabyte board a while back. Gigabyte took forever to release a proper bios that would allow AMD Turbo Core to function properly with the new bulldozer cpu's. I don't think ASUS boards had the same issue, but nevertheless, it could be something to check if your problem persists. I looked at ASUS's site for the M5A97 motherboard and it seems that there are about 3 recent bios releases that ''improve stability''. Depending on what bios version your motherboard has, a bios update might be something to consider after all other possibilites have been tried. My 0.02cents.
