is my cpu being overclocked with default settings in bios?

i have a 4690k and i set everything to default optimized settings in bios
but for some reason it looks like my cpu is overclocked.

    The temperatures are fine (a little high, but fine), I don't see what you mean by the CPU being overclocked. All settings are at stock. The only thing that looks to be a bit off is the fan speed, although that could be easily fixed by a cheap aftermarket heatsink if the sound is bothering you.

    Corsair says that the pump should be running at a constant speed, so if it is plugged into the CPU header then in the BIOS you need to turn off the variable speed. The radiator can be hooked up to another motherboard fan header and controlled independently (sped up or slowed down depending on the temperature). You could use other software to make your own fan curve in order to get lower temperatures.

    Isn't it better to have the pump on the CPU connection, but disable fan control on that connection in the BIOS, so that motherboard will be alerted immediately if the pump fails? The CPU will overheat much quicker if the pump stops than if the fan stops...
