Specs: Windows Vista
Ok so lately I have been running a AMD Phenom II X4 Processor 2.6Ghz at 3.04 GHz Overclocked; when its not overclocked, sometimes i catch a glance of my cpu running at 800mhz, and then spike back up to 2.611Ghz

My system is:
AMD Phenom II X4 810 2.6Ghz
8Gb DDR2 667mhz
Pny GeForce 9800gt
Antec Earthwats 750 powersupply
all on a MA790x-UD4P motherboard

My Question:
Is this normal? Right now im watching my Cpu figures jump from 2.611 > 1.406 > .807 > 1.909 (Ghz) with 3 Firefox windows open as I type

Edit: Im looking at my CPU voltage and its hopping from 1.25 > 1.04 > 0.96 > 1.36 ( this cant be good)
Im looking at AMD overdrive, and its saying my core multiplier is moving too! ( from 7x - 9.5x-13x)
