Task manager shows wrong base speed

Hello, I recently replaced an old i5-4570 3.2Ghz(Turbo 3.6Ghz) with a bit better i7-4790k 4Ghz(Turbo 4.4Ghz) cpu, it works fine I hope, but I noticed that Task manager shows my base speed is 3.2Ghz and it never goes over, even though at the top it says 4790k 4Ghz, is it just a bug? or does my cpu has problems?

I didint change any settings, just swapped the cpu.

Should I check something in the BIOS?
