Bus speed: 163
QPI Link: lowest setting
CPU Voltage: 1.256 V

Do you have it overclocked?

Edit: your bus speed is impossibly high

I don't know man it just seems like some kind of bug. If you don't have any instability i wouldn't worry about it too much.

I wouldn't worry to much if that happens when I work. Now I can't start any project till I feel first spike and go restart my PC.. and that kinda sucks :/
