i5-6600k: Overclock turbo frequency while keeping frequency drop at idle

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I have an asus z170 pro gaming MOBO along with the i5-6600k and I am overclocking it. I made it to 4.5GHz with x45 core ratio but the CPU stays at this frequency even when idle. Even though I OC, I prefer to have some power saving features. So I am looking into dropping frequency.

I would like to know if it's basically possible to overclock only the turbo frequency and keep the CPU at a lower frequency when idle (3.5GHz or something).

Is this normal and once I OC, the CPU stays at max frequency? Do you know if this is possible and if yes what setting should I change? Did I miss something along the way?
If it is not possible, is there any other power saving features I should enable when OCing?

Thanks for your help!
