Could be a heat problem. Download Coretemp or Realtemp and ORTHOS or Prime95. Run for example ORTHOS stress test, and watch the temperature readouts on Coretemp. wait for a while, and see what temps you get, then post them on this thread. This way we will be able to see if it's a temperature issue.

That would be a heat issue, when your system is overheating, the cpu will take measures to limit heat usage by crippling its own performance, if it detects a minimal to no difference in the heat while still overheating, it will continue to cripple itself until the issue is resolved. How to resolve: get a new heatsink!
May suggest this one:
I have it myself, its cool and quiet, also its only $24.99
