So when I got the board I believe it had version 0801.
Normally all four cores of the i7 3770k idle around 1600mhz and ramp up to 3700-3900 when needed.

I just upgraded to 0906 but now all four cores stay ramped up 100% of the time. Speedstep is still enabled in the bios.

Specifically I upgraded via AI Suite II (and also updated start up image at the same time).

Anything I can do to fix this?

Side question, I have a Cooler Master N520 CPU cooler with two 3 pin wires that go into a y adapter. I took that 3 pin adapter and moved it from the CPU fan header to a chassis fan header on the motherboard so I could control the speed with Fan Xpert 2. Is this safe/ok?
