I think you are using a non-k version, as in CPU-z it states 2600k, not 2600. Is that at stock volts? and whats the temps. You need to make sure it is stable as well. Run IntelBurntest at max with all RAM tested/Prime95 Blend custom with all RAM tested. If you didnt, it isnt stable.

I do hope you aint overclocking with the stock cooler.

temps on idle dont matter much but that is pretty high. gotta get your temps when stressing it. if it gets up to 75, turn off the stress test and let us know how long it was running for.

Was your CPU-z shot taken at idle or under stress. 4.1GHz and under stock voltage doesn't sound right, but Im new to this too.

What have you run to determine its stable?

you really should look into a better thermal solution or check your TIM before pushing your chip like that. you'll end up with a piece of intel branded charcoal if you keep going like that
