    My I7-6700k was running cool and now the Max Core Frequency changes constantly

      Now all the sudden the Max Core Frequency drops down way lower than it use to (even to 2Ghz) and when it rises up to 4-4.2Ghz I get temp spikes to around 50 then immediately back down. Why is the core frequency all of the sudden dropping down so low and popping back up to 4. From what I can remember it normally stayed around 4 and I didn't have these spikes in heat. The whole time I've had this computer, normal operation never made the cores jump to 50 but I also never use to see it downclock to 2.86Ghz and jump back up and violently change going up and down constantly. Thanks
