Well, I don't know how to explain this and the best way to show you what I mean would be pictures. I have 2 programs monitoring my CPU and other important hardware. Basically, when I'm not running any CPU intensive games/apps then my Multiplier drops from x9 to x6, cutting my CPU speed by 1/3, making it 2GHz. Some other things I've noticed, my DRAM freq have dropped by half, they are supposed to be set at 800MHz, which is non OC. They are currently at 400. I've also seen my "Current" CPU speed drop to about 1150 depending on what I'm doing. It does it so rarely and if I try to get one of my programs running to monitor it, it goes back to 2.0 or 3.0 GHz. Now I could be wrong on some of my thoughts, but you look at the dump file and my screen shots and tell me what you think. Is the changing speed normal?
