Its EIST.. It will throttle the cpu in order to save energy and to give the cpu a longer life.. It's nothing to worry over, but you can disable it in the bios..

Check you're bios settings. Many MBs have a multi-controller that changes depending on load (for power saving/temps). Make sure its turned off (Usually called something like SpeedStep, on mine neway)

Also, I think you mean you're 2.2ghz when you're idle? And are you ocing? odd that a q6600 would just jump to 3.3ghz.
