Well just threw together my new rig, with my i7-2600k

The processor denotes that it has "turbo boost technology" to 3.8ghz , well i went into the bios and set to a 4.0 OC.
System is reading @3.4 then to the side of it it denotes 3.9. My cpu z shows the processor is at 3.4. I am just a bit confused is there something i have to disable in bios? I am running a p67-a-ud7 from gigabyte.

here is my CPU Z http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1606641

I followed all of that , but am still really confused. My multiplier in the BIOS is set to 4.0GHZ and programs like CPUZ and Coretemp are not reflecting the new multiplier at all. Is there a reason for this ?

Wow!!! Well i did a 4.0 stability test 4 four hours , completed it ,



So crazy how easy it was, took me weeks to find the sweet spot on my 965 BE.
I wanna try 4.5 here soon.

4.6 Ghz seems to be easily doable with stock cooler (See Guru3D Sabertooth review)

I tried it manually with the @bios program, @bios is up to date, but when i try updating from a gigabyte server or use the actual file to update using the @bios program , it says "program not responding" etc. I have not tried the flash drive.
