          Make sure that the Enhance Intel SpeedStep® Technology is disabled in the BIOS of the motherboard, since this feature will force the processor to run slower in order to safe power consumption.

          Usually this option is called EIST on the BIOS of the system, but if you have problems finding the option please contact the motherboard manufacturer.

          Also if possible I would suggest testing the processor on another motherboard to see if it causes the same behavior.
