That's normal. The Taskmanager can't read the cpu properly, you have to use cpu-z for example... Or Speccy!

Most CPUs will not maintain full turbo clocks while doing synthetic loads like cinebench. Game benchmarks or ones like 3D Mark Firestrike / Timespy do a much better job of loading the cpu with a real world workload.
