    PID versus SIU CPU Speed Differential

    i73970XGuy

      Hello I have an i7-3970X clocked to 4.0 GHz (multiplier x40) shows correctly in PID as CPU Speed 4.0 GHz but shows CPU Speed 5.6 GHz in  System Identification Utility Reference Number: 0394 9375.  Note I get a similar differential issue with 3DMark Time Spy which shows a "Reported stock core clock" of 5.6 GHz while reporting a "Maximum turbo core clock" of 4.0 GHz.  Note MB is at 100 MHz.

       

      I'd like understand why the 5.6 GHz number is being generated.  Please advise, thanks
