How do I change my CPU core multiplier?

The CPU I have is supposed to have a core clock speed of 3.7GHz for each of its 4 cores but it is actually running at 1.7Ghz across the board. No matter what kind of tasks I am performing on my computer, whether it be nothing, or playing an intense video game, the clock speed generally remains at 1.7Ghz fluctuating between 1.69 and 1.71 Ghz. No matter what target voltage I set my CPU to have (using AMD Overdrive), the current voltage remains at the minimum, 0.9375V. No matter what I set the CPU core multiplier to, which should be 37 (37 x 100MHz = 3.7GHz), the CPU core multiplier remains at 17 (17 x 100MHz = 1.7GHz). I am not experienced when it comes to computers so any information regarding CPU voltage, clock speeds, or multipliers would help, thanks.
