When the cpu is 0% utilized it's around 1.7GHz. I assume that is auto underclock.

When it's doing something it can go up to 4,17 GHz. Is that normal??

It says max 3.8GHz.. Mobo is Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H

if XMP is enabled in your BIOS,
RAM will run at 1600MHz and CPU will run at 4.1GHz Turbo... Its normal. dont worry...

dont worry,
before i enabled XMP my turbo was set to 4.2Ghz! Default! i enabled XMP and it came down to 4.1Ghz...

And isnt it better if your cpu runs faster??? why worry :p

As long as you are not experiencing any heat or stability problems, you will be fine.

Well I can only say that I experience the same. I got an i5-3570 that boosts all the way to 4.8 Ghz after I installed a new water cooler without touching a thing in BIOS. I was a little worried in the start too, but you shouldn't worry. AS long as you don't experience heat problems or performance problems, then it's just fine.
