5.1 GHz, yes, though that will depend on your sample of the i7 some have had a little lower clock speeds. Have a go at this reddit.
I don't understand. Does this mean, that some random chips are slower than it should be? Like is it because of the chip model or what? And if the description is wrong of the seller, I shall send it back lol.
I bought my CPU from Amazon :
Intel i7-10700K 16M Cache, up to 5.10GHZ
Model: Intel Corel i7 4700MQ
125 Watt

Well a good chip should get you 5.1Ghz depending on the sample and the cooling you have.
Trouble is you need 8 or 10 Samples to get a good one with Intel.

All systems are different. You need to stress test at stock to get a baseline.
Don't try to go to a max OC in one hit. Do it in 200MHz steps using your multiplier. And increase your core voltage in .01Vsteps. Stress test as you go.

Try these Bios settings for 5.2 GHZ
BIOS voltage - 1.400
LLC to level 4
Load Vcore - 1.270
Idle Vcore - 1.394
VCCIO - Auto
VCCSA - Auto
