    Intel core i7 2600k runs at 1596.4 mhz while in idle?


      According to CPU-Z, (a program for measuring hardware speeds and so on), my cpu seems to randomly drop to 1596.4 mhz in speed, particularily when in idle, but it kept flicking between this speed and the proper 3400mhz when I was doing some video work too. I havent checked during other applications, but this is enough to raise questions. Is there a reason for this, like, is it meant to do this? Or is there an issue somewhere in my computer?
