That CPU has Intel Speedstep and EIST that controls the voltages and other things which could be lowering that value when it's not under stress. Does the core speed increase while under stress? You should be able to configure this within the BIOS.

Another thing to check is whether or not your motherboard supports those speeds.

Stereo Mix not functioning properly in Win7
OK, so I've got a Conexant sound card, a CX20671, and since Microsoft removed the StereoMix from W7, I used a tweak which would let me use it again. The thing is, it works fine, but it's awfully quiet (It's almost inaudible). How can I fix this? Thanks for the help!
