So my processor, as you see from the title, is an i7 5820k. It's base clock is 3.3 GHz and OC is 3.6 GHz. Well when I view the task manager under the performance tab, I see that it fluctuates reaching 3.96 GHz at some points. Is this dangerous? I keep an eye on my processor temps while gaming as well and the package temp only reaches about 40C. None of the cores are over 40C... What do you all think of this?
