Is this normal? North Bridge Clock, CPU Core Clocks dropped twice during 3hr 30min AIDA64 test

Thread Starter 
During a 3 hour, 30 min AIDA64 test my North Bridge Clock and CPU Core Clocks dropped twice, is this normal? My temps seem fine, the highest my CPU hit was 67C.

The AIDA 64 test may sometimes use a 100% load to a 0% load at times. So this would be normal.

Did you find any answer why the clocks drop? I've the same problem and i think this is not "normal". And if you use HWinfo64 you will se that your pcie clock to downclock the same way. This has nothing to do with 0% or 100% load.
