    Question CPU Frequency Question

    When I open Core Temp, I notice that the frequency of my CPU will randomly jump between 4400hz, 800hz, 2200hz and etc. The same happens with the power, it'll jump from like 12W to 62W. Is this something to worry about? My CPU is an Intel i7-4790k and has not been overclocked.
