What is this madness?

(I'm aware that the top number refers to the non-Turbo Boosted clock speed, but what of the others?)

I see you've added the [overclocking] tag. Might that have something to do with it? – Indrek Oct 27 '12 at 12:21
@Indrek Obviously I overclocked it to get that speed, but I only set it to 4.4 GHz. How could it get up to 5.94? – user912 Oct 27 '12 at 12:24
Try checking with some other utility, like Intel's Turbo Boost Monitor or HWiNFO. What speed do they report? – Indrek Oct 27 '12 at 12:31
@Indrek Intel Turbo Boost Monitor only goes up to 4.4 GHz, but task manager still gives me a crazy number. I'm inclined to believe the Intel one, but what could be causing this inaccuracy? – user912 Oct 27 '12 at 12:47
