yea, perfectly normal. Its best to leave c1e and speedstep enabled. It conserves power and increases the longevity of your chip, and best of all it will not hinder performance in any way.. Once you put any kind of load on the cpu it will increase its speed as it sees fit. If you open a game or program that requires all of the cpus power it will crank it self up to whatever max clock you have set.

One thing to check in your bios is to make sure your bclk is at 100 and not some other value. You want to keep this at 100 at all times. Some boards arent always spot on 100bclk. Ive seen some go 100.3 or 98.8, which is perfectly acceptable so long as it stays in that range. Also the turbo multiplier setting is what your going to want to change to increase/decrease your load/max clock speeds. Any overclocking with sandy bridge is done through the turbo multiplier (except on gigabyte boards).
