Just wondering if this is normal or do I have a problem.

I have an Intei extreme x6800 cpu.

Useing Everest I get the following readings.

cpu multiplier 11.5x which fluctuates with 6.0x
cpu fsb 255.43 which fluctuates with 489,58 and 255.12

Why?

SIW gives the following:

What operating system are you running SIW under? If you have VISTA and the machine is otherwise performing, do not worry, as there are smarts that fiddle with the performance to save power.
You might care to run MEM-86 to see what the actual result is without an operating system.

Sounds like the intel version of cool and quiet kicking in, speedstep, isn't it?
