Core i7-920 Turbo Boost higher than normal?

  1. I was performing a BIOS update on my comp and found an interesting thing with intel's turboboost. Normally, in i7-920 turbos to 2.94 GHz (i think), and I got intel's turboboost monitoring widget. The widget in the attached ss is showing 3.66 Ghz! I also find it strange that the processor is being used this much during a BIOS update... Dont know if this is what normally happens.
