Hi, I was overclocking my Core i5 2500K with my new Corsair H60 and a ASRock Extreme3 Gen3. I set the multiplier to 44 and BCLK to 100 (stock) because my temps were good there and I figured I wasn't going use more than that anyway. When I set it to 44, it kept going from 44, to 43, then back 44. I figured it was just a glitch, so I changed the multiplier to 43 and just started testing from that. It seemed to stay at 43 and I was happy. I came back to check it later, and it was bobbing between 42 and 43 now. Does anyone know why?

I believe clocks will fluctuate slightly. Bios and windows environment seem to show different volts and clocks.

So basically, I am really at 4.4Ghz, like I should be, just Windows is reading it as 4.3?

Whatever it's in the bios is normally the clock. Bill Gates is just trolling you.

Hahha. That's funny. I ran it with OCCT this time instead of Prime95. The clocks didn't change at all. I think Prime was interfering with something.

Thanks for the help.
