    1400 is 1.4 ghz on idle
    1800 shoild be 5% load 1.8ghz
    20,000 is weird u sure its not 2000mhz if it is it means its running at 2ghz

    wow that seems pretty low tbh 2ghz's on a FX 6100, core unlocked as well. shouldn't i be getting like 3.5ghz or more? ill run CPU-Z and start p bf3 and ply alittle and see what it jump's to, i just thought it was odd that it was jumping around like that for no reason.

    The jumping is called throttling and your cpu does that to prevent from overheating or whatever, as long as you have a decent cooler you can turn it off in your BIOS.
