My i7-4770K is running at 3.9Ghz, when the default clock speed is 3.5Ghz

When running a game, or other such program, RealTemp is telling me that the CPU clock is 3.9Ghz, which is apparently the maximum clock speed that the CPU can handle. How can I make sure that the maximum CPU clock speed is 3.5Ghz? I am using a maximus VII hero motherboard.
And yes, I do realize how stupid this may sound.
