Default Problem with Core 3 Multiplier

My sister's system:

Intel Q9550 Multiplier for core 3 is 8.5 and the others are 6.0. Is this a defective CPU.

Using Asus P5QL-E with C1E Enabled and Intel SpeedStep Enabled.

I had disabled the C1E and Intel SpeedStep and all cores has 8.5 multiplier but the temperature stays the same. Operating System is Windows XP Pro

Speedstep drops the multi when there is no load to save power. Your chip is working fine.

These reading are done while the system is idle.
