hoping i can get some info,im novice to intermediate with computers.I just picked out my first build and put it together:

 

INTEL I7 4790K 4 GHZ

ASUS Z97-AR MOBO

SAMSUNG 850 PRO SSD 128 GIG

KINGSTON HYPER-X   2X8 GIG DDR3 1600 MHZ

NVIDIA GTX 660 TI DDR5 VID CARD

CORSAIR CX 750 WATT POWER SUPPLY

 

 

 

everything runs fine,i installed PIRIFORM SPECCY to see how its running and noticed the chips cores are running between 4.2 and 4.4 GHZ,when i thought it was supposed to run 4 ghz normally,and overclocked around 4.4 GHZ.I did not change anything in the BIOS,nor did i hit any turbo switches(1 for the CPU and 1 for the ram on the MOBO)Also the core temps were fine(between 87 -95 FH idle,highest i seen was 115 FH on a vid game)like i said im fairly new at this,so im wondering is this normal or did i just get a good chip?Thank you in advance .......

Its a relatively new build. Asus Z97 may have auto boost clock on to give you a little extra umph when needed. I wouldnt complain about getting extra speed out of the chip without heat being an issue.

Certain Intel CPUs can automatically overclock a little bit. My Core i7-2600K will jump from 1.6 GHz to 3.8 depending on demand for the CPU. It's rated for 3.4 GHz and has a max turbo frequency of 3.8 that it will automatically use in the right conditions. If I want to I can push it to run faster than 3.8 GHz. The unlocked 'K' CPUs can be overclocked higher than their max turbo frequency with good cooling. Your motherboard might have a BIOS feature you can enable that will try to automatically find a higher overclock that is stable. Or, you can manually change settings in the BIOS setup. I recommend you look for some guides about using your motherboard to overclock your CPU. If you don't know what you're doing you can break your CPU or significantly shorten it's lifespan.
