Overclocked 3570k @ 4.5 GHz Doesn't go past 3.9 GHz in Prime95

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I overclocked my 3570k to 4.5 GHz at 1.25V (Still need to check for stability) and it says 4.5 GHz in Realtemp and CPUz and so on whilst gaming, but when I try and run a test with Prime95 it goes down to 3.9 GHz, I have turned off turbo boost and the other one with that, I forget its name, plus i've tried disabling a few other options i've read can help, such as speedstep, but it doesn't seem to help. Any suggestions?
Thanks!! And sorry if i have posted this in the wrong section
Specs:
MSI Z77A-G45 Gaming edition Motherboard
Intel core i5 3570k
Corsair H100i

that's maybe because you changed only 1-core-limit multiplier to 45 and the rest of them are default , raise them all .
