It's called Speedstep I think. Anyway, when your CPU isn't under a load, it drops the multiplier and voltage to conserve energy and lower temperatures. You may be able to disable it in the bios.

The setting is called EIST if you want to disable it. It's best to leave it enabled if you're not overclocking though.
