Hi guys,

I just upgraded my rig with a new PSU and graphics card and i noticed that my CPU and RAM frequency keeps changing. I didn't do any overclocks on it. Is this normal? or could my PSU be defective?

Here are my specs:
CPU: Intel i5 3470
MB: MSI Z77A-G45
RAM: 4 x G-Skill Ripjaws 1600MHz
Graphics: HIS R9 270x
PSU: Silverstone Strider 750w 80plus Gold

It is normal since when your cpu loads decrease also decreases the frequency to save power, and increases as loads do increase. so thats nothing bad.
