thats just speed step doing its thing. As a part of its power savings and cooling methods, it will downclock the cpu when its not doing anything.

You can turn it off in the BIOS menu and have your COU run at max speed all the time...if you want

Disable "C1E Halt Mode" in your BIOS; that should fix it. It's a power-saving feature on Intel processors.
