Of course, that lower frequency results in lower framerates.

Since this is my first time, how can I tell if I've got the heat sink/fan on the CPU installed correctly? I know it's hooked up right, that was fairly simple to find the connection on the motherboard, and it shows the RPM speed in the Bios and Asus windows tool.

It's just the normal fan that came with the processor with those four snap in post legs. I guess I could just get a better CPU cooler, but I'm worried I'll install that wrong too.
