Default Wierd results by CPU-Z help

I recently built a computer for someone, featuring a Asus M2A-VM mainboard with a AMD +5000 2.6ghz brisbane processor and 4gb of OCZ 800mhz Ram 5-8-8-18. Vista Home Premium. Everything works fine, (Cept it runs a lil hot) but when entering CPU-Z to check that the ram was set to the rite timings, i was getting some odd results. CPU-Z was showing that my CPU Voltage was changing constantly from 1.1 to 1.3V, and my Multiplier was changing from 13x down to 5 every couple of seconds. Other programs have listed that the processor is running at 2.6 ghz, and vista scored the processors ratings all above 5.5. Is it just CPU-Z being crazy or is there something wrong with the hardware?

This is to save power and reduce heat. It's called Cool n'Quiet, the CPU will downclock and undervolt itself to save power.
