Sigh... This is asked way too often, I'm going to make a faq/guide with pictures, how it works, why it works, how to disable/enable it, and etc in the morning.

The reason for it is speedstep, a way too common question it seems some days. Unless your putting a load on your CPU(sitting at idle), by default it will try to save some power by automatically dropping the multiplier without user input. Till I make the mini guide/faq, read this thread for some information. WTF is going on with my 8400
