I have a 2600k and an ECS p67h2-a2 motherboard. And i want to overclock the 2600k a bit, see if i can get another year or two of use out of it, or at least convince myself to wait long enough for more motherboards to come out for Ryzen and for Intel's next gen. Unfortunately it isn't the most user friendly bios. I eventually found the CPU multiplier and set it to 40 and disabled turbo mode, but using cpu-z and HWMonitor, i never see the clock rate go above 3392 when stress testing it. When I later go into the bios, the multiplier is still set to 40, so it isn't being reset. Any ideas what could be preventing it from going above 3392?
