multiplier is at 40, voltage is set to 1.3 all c-states and turbo boosts are turned off. The total draw power is set at 200 watts for a limit. It is set to use a fixed ratio. But when i boot cpuid and windows says its at 3.6 Ghz with a multiplier of 14-35.

Keep turbo boost enabled / on. It needs to be left on to go past the stock multiplier.

Also the CPU clock speed fluctuating when booted into windows and not doing any stress tests is normal as it's a power saving feature on these CPUs. You can set it at a constant speed but at the cost of more power being used (best not to do so anyway).

I'm having this same problem, but with the MSI X99A RAIDER instead of the SLI Plus.

I tried this advice, but nothing has changed. Turbo Boost is enabled, bu the clock is just locked at 3.6. Won't budge.

I'm starting to wonder if this might be an MSI issue.

Oh thank god its not me. Thats the conclusion i came to as well. i tried leaving it with the turbo boost on as well, and running cpu stress tests and the frequency did not change from 3.599 Ghz

Was asked to post these to provide more info. Forgive the non widescreen its on a testbench.

Its a MSI problem. They have turbo boost 3.0 disabled by default with no apparent way of enabling it. I have the X99A-GODLIKE and it also doesn't overclock. What a waste of money to get a gimped up motherboard.

Hopefully they release a bios update pronto or I will reconsider ASUS.

Is turbo 3.0 required for overclocking now? im a bit out of the loop at this ponit.

In ThrottleStop, what happens when you set all of the Turbo Ratio Limits to 38 and then put a load on the CPU. You can click on the TS Bench test for a quick load test.

Edit - Are you using the Windows High Performance power profile with the Minimum processor state set to 100%?

When I had the haswell-e 5820k my overclock showed instantly on cpuz, command center, gaming app, core temp. Everything.

With broadwell-e 6800k, none of it shows up. Nowhere. No matter what settings I enable or disable, it still shows processor as stock. When I return to the BIOS, my OC is still there. I have the latest bios, and I even reflashed it. Apparently MSI boards do not fully support broadwell-e yet.
