Overclock not applying in Windows 10

I have a i7 6950x and an asus rampage edition 10 mobo, and i have been using this overclock for a while and its been very stable. But at some point i looked at cpu-z openhardware monitor and task manager and it was all saying it was 3.5GHz whether on full load or idle. The only way to change this was by turning off turbo mod which just limited it to its base clock.

My overclock settings are
Clock: 4.3GHz Sync all cores
CPU core: 1.35v
CPU cache ratio: 36x
CPU cache voltage: 1.2v
Intel speedstep disabled
c-states disabled
Load line: Level 6

I have removed all restrictions in the bios including thermal limitations and have tried updating and resetting my bios. I even tried resetting windows using the options in the windows settings.
If anyone knows anything else i can try will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
Found the problem it was a recent windows 10 update that decided to put a limit on my core speed. Think nows the time to switch to ubuntu .

That's well known problem and I think it's terrible.
You should download previous versions of Windows 10.
Like 1511 or 1607 and forbid any Windows Update.
I think that's only way. Maybe someone know other, but I read about such problems on ASUS Forum.
Some people are very angry on ASUS, owners of Broadwell-E.

If you want I could give you my i7-5820K for non overclockable i7-6950X???
With him I really don't care is it Win 7 or basic version of Windows 10 without number without defender and Window Updates, anyway my security softwares would defend PC nothing from sick Microsoft. That's drunk trio Intel-ASUS-Microsoft who could resove problems.
But I think their occupation is 3 years forward.
