Core i5 2500k @ 15 Ghz - Need help

First of all. I am not a troll.

I was compressing a 21gb worth of files to rar using WinRAR and I opened up CoreTemp..

To my surprise, it listed on Frequency something like this... 15610.39Mhz(446.01x35.0).

Im so confused. My temps are OK, maxing out on 66C.

I would like to provide the screenshot but im still finding a way to upload the pic.

Please help me if anyone know an explanation of this.

Is my cpu alright?

Thanks in advance

Use Tinypic, Photobucket, etc. to upload the pic to and then you can post it here.

Yeah, I'd say that's just a crazy glitch...

Yeah i hope so. it seems fine so far. Compression is 63% finished now.

I have had similar odd readings on my i7 860 which has sometimes appeared at 9 GHz. Must be a glitch with Core Temp as otherwise your computer would be in flames :)

i think its really a glitch. i downloaded 'all cpu meter' gadget and it gave me a 3.3 ghz reading.

Thanks for all the replies.

compare the core temps readings to cpu-z readings. I bet the CPU-z will be correct.

You can tell it's incorrect as it shows (446x34) to get the freq.
The 446.01 should be 100. The base Bclock can only be changed by a small amount.
The 446 is very close to what would be the Freq applied to ram, but then for DDR3-1600 that should be 400 . 446 would equate closely to DDR3-1800

Try the Core Temp RC3.
