Is my CPU speed being throttled ?

HP Recommended
HP Z820
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi everyone,


I've been doing some benchmarking and checking my system score and results to see if everything is working as it should be. I've noticed that my CPU speed is the lowest one among similar people with same hardware (My result is the last one)


Anyone know why my CPU is running at 3391Mhz while the others are higher with same motherboard ?


Also same issue when I tested in User benchmark, it tells me my results are below expectations, even my single core results are slower than others with the same system (Z820 using the same motherboard). my results can be seen here: 


I've been checking my CPU temps and they are running cool, averages around 60c - 70c usually


I don't know why my results are like this, I'm feel something is causing it to be throttled. Btw I'm on performance plan and did all the recommended bios settings from this guy:
