Today I updated my BIOS for my ASUS Z87-A to the latest version. I wrote down all my old BIOS settings because my system was running really stable at those settings.

With my old settings I ran it the baseclock of 3.4ghz for desktop use and when I launched a game it overclocked to 4.5ghz. I had turbomode enabled, SpeedStep and C-States disabled.

Now with this new bios I use the exact same settings but the problem is it runs at 4.6ghz all the time now, wether its idle or stressed.

How can I get it back to run 3.4ghz at idle and when the turbo mode kicks in it jumps up to 4.5ghz?

I've been trying many many different settings, but can't get it done. Anyone have idea?

My settings:

EIST: Disabled
Turbomode: enabled
CPU C States: disabled

ASUS multicore enhancement: auto
CPU Core Ratio: Sync all cores (45)
Internal PLL overvoltage: auto
OC Tuner: As Is
EPU Power saving mode: disabled
Extreme over voltage disabled
CPU core voltage: auto ( 1.008)
CPU cash voltage: auto
SVID control: auto
CPU Spread Spectrum: disabled

You would have to re-enable EIST to make is clock down. This could cause your overclock to become unstable.
