Hey all, I finally picked up a Vishera CPU today and have started putting it throught it's paces. I havnt started overclocking yet but CPU-Z shows it as 3.7 as opposed to stock 3.5. When I start Prime95 it drops it down to stock multiplier 17.5 and it becomes 3.5 again. However, while running it the multiplier drops to 14.5 and it becomes 2.9ghz for a second before going back up to stock. This starts happening even before I hit 50C, Is my CPU throttling already? After 5 minutes prime95 hits 55C.
