Default fluctuating vcore

I have set my vcore to 1.360. However CPU-Z shows this fluctuating, under load, from anywhere between 1.328 to 1.311. Is this abnormal? It doesn't seem to be giving me any stability issues, but it seems like it should. If I were to set the vcore to 1.310, I'm positive that the computer wouldn't boot even at stock settings, and defiantly not at what I have it clocked at now..
Any insight?
