My E8500 is clocked 3.8ghz. However, the clock speed on both cores jump to 7ghz (give or take 100mhz) for 2-3 seconds every 15-20 mins under high load. I've been noticing that it has been causing my system to freeze when doing so. I use HWiNFO64 and log the readings and the last reading before freeze is always when cpu is at 7ghz
so why and how does this happen?
