CPU boost clock speed lower than stock speed

Hi guys, I have an i7 4770k oc @ 4.3gz ( oc with asus suite 4way optimization ), i just ran the 3d mark benchmark test and the results show stock clock at 3.5 and boost at 2.9 ( this cant be right ) , I have an asus Z87 pro MB, 8gb vengeance pro and 2x gtx 780 in Sli with a H100I cooler, any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.

  1. you have to disable boost clock when overclocking. otherwise it does weird things like this
  2. Hi ethereal , how would i disable boost clock when using the auto tune in Ai suite?

  4. It will be in your BIOS
  5. NEVER use "automatic" overclocking

    who knows what it will do

    Do you know where i can find an idiot proof oc guide for a i7 4770k i would prefer not to burn out the chip :-)
  8. the only way you can burn anything is from overvolting

    who knows what voltage the "auto" setting is giving the cpu and motherboard
