It's normal for CPU to idle at 800MHz... how you checked the clocks? Was PC under load or idle?

Make sure that your Power Management settings in Windows are set to Balanced instead of Power Saving.

If yes, make sure in the advanced settings that the maximum CPU state is 100%.

 

Edit:

Also, temperatures are fine? No throttling?
