My computer is overclocking my overclock?

Okay so I had my i7-7820X at 4.8Ghz , 1.25V.

I ran stress tests, decided everything was okay and started playing a few games.

I noticed on HW monitor however that my max clock was going up to 5000Mhz for some reason.

I also experienced crashing during games so I downclocked back to 4.6Ghz 1.2V.

I'm experiencing the same issue with my max clock being 4919Mhz.

I did a little searching and my windows power mode is at balanced and I have disabled turbo boost in bios.

Any thoughts on why this is happening? Thanks

My 4790k is at 4.5Ghz but if I open HWmonitor and go play Gta V for an hour, it says at some point my max core clock was 4.7ghz so i think its just a bug

CPU: INTEL Core i7 4790k @ 4.7Ghz - Cooling: NZXT Kraken X61 - Mobo: Gigabyte Z97X SLI - RAM: 16GB G.Skill Ares 2400mhz - GPU: AMD Sapphire Nitro R9 Fury 4G - Case: Phanteks P350X - PSU: EVGA 750GQ - Storage: WD Black 1TB - Fans: 2x Noctua NF-P14s (Push) / 2x Corsair AF140 (Pull) / 3x Corsair AF120 (Exhaust) - Keyboard: Corsair K70 Cherry MX Red - Mouse: Razer Deathadder Chroma

Bit of an AMD fan I suppose. I don't bias my replies to anything however, I just prefer AMD and their products. Buy whatever the H*CK you want.
