I used the Intel Processor Tool and it is telling me that my processors speed is at 3.61 GHz, but it expected it at 3.40 GHz.

Is my CPU overclocked or something? Is this normal?

the Intel turbo boost is active and can clock your cpu from 3.4 to 3.8ghz depending on the load on it and Intel Speed Step will reduce it at 1.6ghz when you're idling... That is totally normal ;)
