i have a dell optiplex 9020 mt with the i5 4590 and for some reason in intel extreme tuning it current limit throttles and lowers the clock speed but if i turn off turbo boost it stops i was wondering if its anything to worry about or if its normal

It's normal and within spec.
The I5-4590 has a TDP of 84w, but that only applies to all 4 cores under load at the base clock speeds.
Obviously, multiple turbo boosted cores are going to hit that limit more easily, but it should still yield better performance than Turbo Boost off and running at base speed all the time.
