CPU Throttling

Hello everyone,

I know this isn't strictly Solidworks but maybe someone on here knows a solution to my conundrum

I have built a pretty beefy machine to use with SolidWorks and a few FEA's. The problem I am having is when the CPU is under really high loads (sustained at 100% for over 5 seconds) the FSB drops from 100MHz down to as low as 0.5MHz. This can be seen in this video:

What I would like to know is what may be causing this

System Specs:

Intel i7-3930K (O.C. 4.0GHz)

16GB DDR3 Quad Channel 1600Mhz

Quadro 2000

2 x 500Gb 10,000RPM HDD RAID 0

Thanks in advance
