CPU speed for 2500K - 5.8GHz?!?!

My WHS2011 is a VM (one of five) on a Windows Server 2008R2 box that is built around a Gigabyte GA-Z68A-D3H-B3, an Intel 2500K, an 16GB RAM. I recently updated the BIOS and reset the RAM to the XMP setting, which bumps it to 1600MHz.

 

Previously the 2500K was running at a default speed of 3.6 GHz due to the XMP settings. WhenI went to the Windows info page, it showed exactly that - 3.6 GHz (default speed of 3.3 GHz). Now it shows the same default speed (3.3 GHz) but a current speed of 5.8 GHz (see screenshot attached.)

 

I know that isn't correct. I am using a Corsair water cooler but no way am I getting those speeds, even with the highly overclockable (unlocked) 2500K.

 

Any ideas why it is showing this now?

No idea why it's doing that, but have you run some benchmark software to find out what the speed truly is? 'Course, maybe it's just the speed in metric :D

So let's see, if 212 = 100 then, err..

 

I'm not seeing speeds indicative of 5.8 GHz. I mean, its fast but not record setting fast.
