Few days back when i was used to check my cpu due to over heating http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/279780-28-955be information here my cpu was used to stay @ 800 MHZ @ idle but now my cpu stays @ 3.2GHZ and even if it does go low only the first 2 core goes @ 800MHZ these is heppening since last night

please remeber i have not OC my cpu and please help me as its scaring me @ 0p cpu usage 3rd and 4th core always stay @ 3,2GHZ though 3rd core goes to 2GHZ some times but 4th always 3.2GHZ
