I7 2600k not going past 3.4 ghz

I have an Asus P8P67 motherboard. And an i7 2600k SandyBridge CPU.

I have followed many many guides, and for some reason my clock ratio NEVER excedes the 3.4 ghz default. I've put my turbo core ratio to 4.0 ghz. And it will not reach 4.0 ghz, it just stays at 3.4. I have also tried changing the actual ratio limit, but it only goes to 34? I thought this chip was fully unlocked meaning I can change the ratio to whatever I want.

More about : 2600k past ghz

Did you try the auto overclock? I hate to state the obvious but are you sure it's a K chip and it registers on CPU-Z as one?

If so, maybe RMA your chip since it will not function in the way it is intended to

You should just increase the multiplier and should be good..

The multiplier only goes to 34. I can't increase it any higher.

And I am positive its a K chip. And it does register on CPU Z

I have the same issue. The multiplier won't go past 34, and I double checked the box that it's a k edition. Intel Z68 mobo.

Hi i figured out the problem to this issue. what you have to do is go to msconfig.exe and go to boot. Then advanced options. Then deselect number of processors.And presto reboot your system set your overcloock and it should be working. it take any thanks in advance
