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
