3770k @ 4.29 ghz but haven't overclocked

Hi I just started running a benchmark with my 3770k.
I opened task manager>performance and it says its speed is 4.29GHz.
I haven't overclocked it. To the right it says maximum speed: 3.90 GHz, which is what I thought it should be.

If anyone could explain that would be great.

Thanks

  1. Did you get your computer from CyberPower?
  2. the stock speed is 3.5GHz, the turbo boost knocks it up to 3.9GHz.

    where did you get the cpu from?
  3. if it hits 4.3ghz (use CPU-Z to validate) its overclocked alright
  4. CPU-Z says 3.9 but the activity monitor says 4.29.
