Default cpuz and core temp errors?

Greetings all, I'm getting some different readings from cpu-z and core temp for my cpu clock speed. My current speed is 3.2Ghz in bios (400X8). However, both programs are jumping back and forth between 400X6 and 400X8. Is this normal? Is anyone else here experiencing this?

It's speedstep. Mine does the same, not sure why it's switching (can't make up it's mind???) but I'm pretty sure (read: 90%+ sure) that's what it is.

I had speedstep disabled in bios. The odd readings disappear as soon as I run prime95. No biggie I guess.

For sure it's speedstep if it disappears when running prime95. It's whole purpose is to save power when not under load.

100% sure it's disabled. It's the first thing I disabled on the first boot last night after final assembly of the Green Machine.
