Windows 7: ratio only overclock

ratio only overclock

so i did rather basic cpu overclock a few hours ago seems fine temp dosnt relly go past 50c so its gone up 10 proformance seems good i dont really plan on going any further really than the 4.3 that its at dont relly have anyting but the stock fans and a few extra fans + the exasut fan

how ever since i am pretty much a noob i was wondering if its normal for the volts to be jumping from 0.160-245-300 700 - 800 eg wili idling in firefox ? the multplier jumps from 41 to 43 , and the core speed is somthing like 116-207-307

the results are in CPU Z

using a i74770k fitted to a Z87

Are you just Turboing up to 4.3 or do you have it at a constant 4.3 ?

If you have just OC`d the Turbo then yes the volts and the core speed will constantly change as you do things on the pc.

But sitting at idle your core speed and volts should stay relatively calm.

I have no idea what a 4770K clocks down to. (a member with a 4770K will have to confirm)

A 4790K at idle.

that is to say i ticked the option " ratio only" in the bios , i have a few things running in the background but i terms of idle volts go to the following numbers that i listed in the blink of an eye - it dosnt stay on those numbers it flickers again and again again, im not sure what a stable overclock looks like besides not crashing .....

Can you change aspect ratio in WMP 12?
There is no direct way to change the AR in WMP11 on the fly. I have to use ZoomPlayer for this functionality. Can WMP12 easily change the aspect ratios or not?
