Just look if you can see one, since you OC'ed
Mind print screening your even viewer -> custom -> admin -> sort by date and time (latest on top)
You should only up the vcore, if you are getting these errors.
But as said previously (and I'm not sure if it was to you):
But have you checked for stability on STOCK, and then have you checked your RAM?
Upping vcore is the easy solution, but sometimes it can hide crucial HARDWARE problems that are occurring (thus WHEA errors)

Speedstep is disabled from my understanding after 3.9.
Turbo/speedstep are the default "oc"
As for the fluctuation, that's totally normal.
2 things you can do to change it if you want (i suggest letting it fluctuate for life of chip and temps):
-Windows power options -> if you go to CPU % you'll be able to see min and max - if you set both to 100% (i.e performance option in windows) then you'll ALWAYS be at 4.5ghz.
-C states -> if you disable ALL of them, then the CPU won't save energy when it is on idle, thus not throttling down
My humble opinion is leaving the CPU to throttle down when not in need.
As my take on it is: "If I'm not using 4.5ghz, nor need it whilst on idle, why stress it?"
When you laucnh prime, you should notice that you'll be on 4.5ghz solidly.
