Thinkpad X1 Carbon Extreme Stuck at Lowest Speed

I seriously don't know where else to turn and could use some community knowledge. I have a new Carbon X1 Extreme that I purchased mainly to do some heavy Excel and Python lifting. (I work in Finance) Shortly after switching to this machine I noticed while calculating my workbooks the fans would no longer spin up and the utilization and speed were stuck at the rates below. (picture) I'm a pretty experienced PC builder and I've gone through every option in excel (Adv. options to set to multitask and use all logical processors), windows (process priority set to high, Affinity set to all logical processors, all power saving options turned off) and in the bios. (to disable intel's power states) No matter what I do this is what I get every time I calculate a workbook. Any thoughts and suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks.  (FYI office ambient temps are 72F and the computer gets more than adequate air flow.) Capture.PNG
