Should I be worried that something is actually wrong with my pc or im just paranoid, im just surprised as this wasnt the case a few months ago (built this pc just around April this year) and now its doing this which is weird.

also i have set the power to balanced but its not clocking down to 800mhz at idle as it used to.

im sorry if its a dumb question.

That is normal.
Cinebench shows the stock clock unless your CPU is OC'd (to a different all core speed), CPUz displays the clock speed at any given second, which changes frequently if you use stock settings or the Balanced Power Plan.
Task Manager also shows the clock taken at intervals BUT is usually slightly different than CPUz.
