FX 6300 clocked ~ 300 MHz too low?

So i have an fx-6300 with a Cryorig C7. Below is the screenshot of my cpu at 100% while running a blend test on Prime95. My cpu should be at 4GHz but instead is at 3.66 - 3.7 GHz.

I'm trying to test the stability but am not sure if I'm really doing this right.



20 minutes into the blend test my cpu utilization goes down to about 65% and the speed varies from 3.55 to 3.65 ghz. I'm an oc newbie and I just can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. Thanks :)

E: seems stable but clock goes up when gaming too, so I guess thats all good and i just gotta see the stability by gaming.
