The 3820 CPU and the ECS X79R-AX am I thee idiot?

I bought an ECS x79R-AX and a 3820 cpu and went through several changes in ram thinking something was wrong, that cpu stayed a 1.2ghz and no one , not even ECS would tell me what was wrong. The restock fines at newegg were huge, I probably have lost $200 bucks in this attempt just to get the new kind of computer going, I bought an Ivy bridge instead. ECS sent me such encrypted pdfs that they could not be opened and would not tell me over the phone what to do. I was told by some passer by that intel had mad 1.2GHZ the real default, not 3.7 GHz as they say the CPU is, every other cpu I have ever bought always ran at the speed they said it was, including intel cpus. So now I am stuck with a motherboard no one will buy that runs 1.2GHZ. I fear that if I saved the $575 dollars to buy the 3930K series, what would happen from a company that lies to me that I am getting 3.7GHZ when it is really 1.2GHz. Mabey I will be told I am a stupid idiot, which is entirely possible. I have been preety good at being stupid, but I think intel or ECS will pass the buck back and forth and never put their money where their mouths are, you pay for a 3930K and send it to me you swindlers! If there is a way to disable the problem, someone tell me exactly where in the bios it is. Either one of you ECS or Intel. Sincerely Richard Eckert, Boise Idaho.

If your processor is under warranty, I recommend contacting support lines at Intel.
