i5 4670k turbomode but with EIST disabled(no downclocking)

Good day,

For the last 10 months or so I've been running an old Z87 BIOS version so today I updated my BIOS version for my ASUS Z87-A to the latest version 1802. Before I did this I wrote all my settings down so I wouldn't mix things up. I'm running an intel i5 4670k

I'm always ran it at the standard base clock of 3400mhz WITH turbomode enabled, but Enhanced Intel Speedstep Technology Disabled. This allowed me to run it @ 3400mhz for desktop use but when I booted up a game it overclocked to 4500mhz.

Now when I use the exact same settings for this newer version 1802 it clocks back to 800mhz and goes up and down with every program you load. It goes from 800 to 1000 to 1200 to 1800 etc. Its all over the place.

How do I get it back to my old way that it runs at the standard base clock of 3400mhz for normal desktop use but uses turbomode for games when needed?

I've been trying allot of different settings but I just can't get it back the way I had it. As I'm not to experienced with overclocking I'm probaly doing something wrong, what am I overlooking?

Some settings:

EIST: Disabled
Turbo Mode: Enabled
CPU C States: Disabled
CPU Spread Spectrum: Disabled
SVID Control: Disabled

Thanks for the help!

    You can go into advanced power settings (within Windows) and set the minimum processor state to 100%.
  2. Thanks for the answer but thats not what im looking for. I'd like to do it through bios settings. Maybe I could phrase it much easier: How do I get it to run at base clock (3400mhz) and never below that but with SpeedStep and Turbo mode enabled?
