How do i get my 2600k to stay at 4.6GHz? - Page 2

Don't know if you can disable it on SB, but look for speedstep/EIST or something under the "advanced" tab for CPU control in your BIOS.

But honestly, unless you like to see that perpetual "4.4GHz" in WEI or CPU-Z, it's really a waste to run the CPU at that speed all the time if you're not doing anything that can take advantage of it.

Regarding the RAM, it should not be changing speed if the bclk is not changing (which it shouldn't be)--you're probably just not accounting for the fact that the RAM speed is double the bus.

I cant remember exactly, but when i ran 3dmark vantage yesterday at 4.6GHz(could have been 4.7 or 4.8 can't remember lol) i got a score of around 30k for the CPU, but it said i was at 3.4GHz on 3dmark vantage site. I could have looked at the wrong place on the results though, and that could have been what you looked at.

Here is the official ASUS P67 overclocking guide. It helped me more than any other guide because it is specifically for ASUS mobos. Im not sure though if your ASUS Maximus IV Extreme uses the same UEFI BIOS though, but the guide should still help.
