My System Specs

Question Please explain behaviour of my CPU

I purchased a ready made buiid of the core 17 920 on a Gigabyte X58 SLI motherboard with a GTX 270 OC. The i7 920 has, supposedly a core speed of 2.67 GHZ. I am at the moment installing a game. On checking CPUZ it is showing a speed of 1.559GHZ and fluctuating up to 2.67 GHZ in spurts. Is this normal? OR is there a setting in the motherboard BIOS that can have a steady speed.

Thanks for any help.
