I'm wondering what the yellowish dots along the CPU clock graph mean. Anyone know?

I'm gonna go with the graph was only set to say 5000mhz so the yellow dots are points where the clock speed exceeded what the graph can show.

so basically what I would have said, with a twist :p

@iamgigglz when I hover over mine, there is a fluctuation ie I set limit to 2000 and it jumped to 3000 and if I hover over it it gives the max reading on that point
