Been having a constant issue of my CPU deciding to drop from 4.5ghz to .8ghz in a flash without any real warning.

My headset starts to emit a static and every single process slows down to a grueling speed.

I've disabled c-states, cleaned out my PC, updated the BIOS, checked the temperatures and nothing seems to be out of the ordinary. Any ideas?
EDIT: CPU Load jumps to 100% as soon as the clock speed goes from 4.5 to .8 ghz
