    Hi Guys

    I currently have an Asus Strix H370 F Gaming and an i5 8600k.

    I have all cores synced to 43 in the BIOS, speed step enabled and C States enabled.

    In CPUZ, the processor can be seen to decrease in frequency and boost to around 4.07ghz but not 4.3ghz.

    I have power settings set to balanced.

    Why is the processor not going to 4.3ghz as I have set it up?

    I'm extremely baffled.

    Any assistance would be appreciated.

    Chris

    What does your bus clock show as running as? Sounds like it's only 95MHz not 100MHz possibly a rogue setting in the BIOS but can't be 100% sure, check CPU-Z or HWiNFO and look at it. :)

    Hi Mate

    Core speed 4090
    Multi x41 (8 - 43 )
    Bus speed 99.76

    I can't find the settings in bios to change this

    It's dropping down to 41x multi then, if it is set at 43x in the BIOS is it showing 43x in CPU-z etc.?

    It seems to be.

    Sync all cores set to 43

    I updated to latest bios to make sure it wasn't a dodgy bios
