okay. i have my cpu running at 3.4ghz with 100mhz bus speed and stock voltage. i have turbo boost disabled. after playing rainbow yesterday i saw that my clock speed went upto 5.4ghz with 159mhz bus speed. was wondering if anyone can help me understand why this happened?

hwinfo picks up such spikes, even if it's only for 0.1s so there's nothing to worry about that. It polls the system every 2s, that's just an anomaly it picked, I've seen the same with aida64 as well but nothing that should concern you.

I've seen this when the system wakes up from sleep, do you put the system to sleep occasionaly &/or is the power plan not set to high performance?

i never use sleep and its high performance i just allow it to throttle down.

So default power savings in the BIOS or are you talking about min processor state not being 100% in the HP power plan?
In both cases you can get spikes, now what's the source of these spikes ~ I can't say but this happens on both Intel & AMD.
