It's fine. That's the idle speed because of SpeedStep. :)

Yes, it's running perfectly. For the last few years all the Core processors have employed Speedstep which reduces the voltage and multiplier (and therfore the processor speed) so the processor uses less power when it is idle. It ramps both right back up again when it needs the speed.

Just to make you feel more at ease, this is my 2500K at idle



One thing though, I highly doubt that your core voltage is REALLY 2.232V, lol.
