I thought it might be a good idea to ask about this since I don't know much about this stuff.

Is that normal behaviour? I'm running a modest 4.3GHz OC on my i5 6600K and when I check in Task Manager I see the reported clock speed dropping as low as 3.9GHz sometimes. Temps don't go above 60c under load. It happens any time - whether CPU utilization is at 100% or only 15%. Seems very random.

Task Manager isn't accurate as far as clock speeds go. Mine reports 4.95GHz on my Threadripper 1950X ... and it could only get that high in my dreams.

Use something like CPU-Z or HWiNFO64 to monitor speeds, voltages, and temps.

Oh I see, thanks. You're right, HWiNFO64 is reporting the correct speeds.
