W510 Turbo Boosting to 1.73GHz?

i7 - 720QM 
8GB RAM (4x2GB 1333MHz)

135W PSU

I have been doing various tasks and I've only seen the Turbo boost jump to 1.73GHz which seems a bit odd.

Is something wrong??

Speedstep had been disabled in BIOS by the previous owner to I believe they said to stop whining?
