Default E8500 Random underclocking

Hey all,

I recently ran CPUZ and Nvidia system monitor on my system after noticing a performance hit in some of my games. Both reported that the Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 was running at 2.0ghz, as apposed to the regular speed of 3.16 ghz. However, when i turn on my pc, the boot screen reports that the pc is still running at 3.16 ghz. What gives?

Antec 900
Intel Core i5 @ 2.66GHz
Asus P7P55D motherboard
EVGA 9800 GTX+ Superclocked
4GB of Patriot Viper II DDR3 RAM
2X320 GB Western Digital @ 7200 RPM
Plextor DVD +/- RW
Corsair TX 750 W power supply
Windows 7-64
