Mobo: Msi B450 mortar.
CPU: Ryzen 5 5600x

Sorry if this is a stupid question and nothing to worry about. I don't know much about CPU overclocking or anything in that field.
I have recently updated to a beta bios in order for my b450 mobo to be compatible with my CPU. While watching a youtube video, I checked CPU-Z to see my cpu clock and voltage, and the clocks showed 4.6 GHz, how is this possible when this should be stock?
Could it be the beta bios overclocking the CPU from the get go?

I also checked HWmonitor and it shows this:

Are these values too high? Is there a safe way I can undervolt my CPU/ set it to stock if it is recommended?
 
The Ryzen 5600X has a maximum boost clock speed of up to 4.6GHz (see: https://www.amd.com/en/products/cpu/amd-ryzen-5-5600x). The processor "self-overclocks" depending on the workload. For light or 1-2 threads of work, it will go up to the maximum boost speed. Throw on more and it'll boost at lower speeds.

If you're wondering why it does this when you're not doing much, there's always something to do in the background, even if it's just making sure there's nothing to do.
