i checked my cpu with cpuz today and noticed that the core speeds in my cpu r going wack...like 1 sec they will be correct at about 3360.8 or so...but then it will change and stay for a couple seconds on 840.0 with a multiplier of only 4 instead of 16! so my question is how do i fix this unstableness or maybe its normal when im not doing anything...but i dont think it is

please help this is making me worried i dont have the cash for a new cpu :thumbsup:

It's not instabilty, it's Cool and Quiet doing it's job.
The idea is when the CPU has little to do it can slow itself down and save power and heat.
When it's needed it can spring instantly back into action again, as you've seen.

So don't worry, everything is perfectly normal :thumbsup:
