First thing I'd check is if I'd check the motherboard BIOS to make sure it is setting the CPU multiplier correctly. Then I'd check and see if the CPU heatsink/fan is clean and running properly. The CPU speed reported by 3DMark is 1.3GHz under the base clock for that CPU, which could indicate thermal throttling or bad multiplier setting.
