I have a E6300 2.8GHz Dual Core processor
In system properties it shows one core as a 2.8Ghz and the other as a 2.67Ghz.

Is it not supposed to display each core as a 2.8Ghz?

What that is telling you is that the stock 2.8 GHz chip is actually running at 2.67 GHz.

You would need to look at the BIOS settings to figure out what is actually going on.

So basically its under performing? Yet in Device manager, each core shows 2.8?

Ignore WIE and use a real benchmark and better monitoring software.
Download CPU-z to monitor your CPU, use HW-monitor- to monitor your temperatures, and run passmark or 3d vantage to benchmark.

I have my E5300 (stock 2.6GHz) overclocked 1GHz to 3.6GHz and WIE still marks it as running at 2.6GHz. However, my CPU score did improve from 5.7 to 5.8 (and I thought the 5.8 number didn't exist)

I have just overclocked my CPU from 2.8GHz(stock) to 3.0GHz and system properties identifies that fine. My first time overclocking btw :)  my Rating for cpu is 6.5 which is not bad. @ Bluescreendeath, how much louder is your system now that its overclocked by 1ghz?
