are Mhz fluctuations normal?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I ran Nvidia’s nTune 5 overclocking utility on automatic settings but it resulted in a phiffling overclock and system instability. I therefore uninstalled nTune 5 thinking it will return my system back to a normal state. Although it seems to be more stable, I am still concerned that my system is in an overclocked state as according to Everest, a lot of figures are above spec.

CPU Clock : fluctuates 1-11MHz above box spec of 2200MHz
FSB: fluctuates around 1MHz above spec of 200Mhz
HT link: fluctuates around 5-10MHz above spec of 1000Mhz
Memory: fluctuates around 0-5Mhz above spec of 400Mhz

PCI-E: Rock steady at 2500Mhz

Are these fluctations normal? I want to return my system to stock / normal settings for now. All relevant motherboard settings are AUTO.

System specs:

Amd Athlon 3500+ Venice core cpu
Asus An8-Sli Premium nForce4 motherboard
1GB generic ram
Seasonic M12-700 psu
Ati X1900XT 256MB (6.9 drivers) gpu.

Welcome to the OCN community, Please fill out your system specs by going here.

I have them too and have seen no ill effects on my system. It can be caused by the power fluctuating from your power supply.

fluctuations are semi-normal. The fsb can fluctuate by less than 1 mhz.....so anything based off of FSB (all of those things) will fluctuate along with it.
