Is my CPU at optimum levels?

I recently bought the Intel Core 15 3570k and i'm not sure if it is me being paranoid but i dont think it is running at optimum speeds. I'm using the stock fan and i have not overclocked it. Please could someone tell me if it is fine or it is not running at correct speeds. Thanks

  1. If you're worried that the core speed is listed lower than you expect, it's because the Intel CPU is throttling down to idle clock speeds. Open a program or game and you will see it throttle back up as the performance is needed.

    Yes, your CPU is running fine.
