What does your Bios say for speed of cpu?
It sure sounds like cool and quiet is on or C2 - C3 is still on

[[email protected] ~]$ cat /proc/cpuinfo | fgrep 'cpu MHz'
cpu MHz        : 3600.164
cpu MHz        : 3600.164
cpu MHz        : 3600.164
cpu MHz        : 3600.164

This is accurate and my Bios is reflecting this speed as well
