Hi, I have an i7 920 Overclocked to 3.31Ghz on an Asus P6T Deluxe board. My powersupply is a Corsair 620W Modular. I am running a single GTX260 and have 6GB of Patriot Viper Series Performance RAM.

When I load Everest, click on Computer and then select Overclocking, the readings under the CPU Clock section seem to fluctuate a lot. The core speed will go from 3800 to 16 at times.

Is this normal? I don't think it is.

Any comments/suggestions?

That's speed step (a power savings feature) kicking in and out. There's nothing wrong with your PC.

It is not the fluctuations I'm concerned about, its how low the clock appears to be going. When I pull up CPUID, it doesn't show the fluctuations though.

16Ghz seems pretty low to me.
