CPU is going to 4.9 ghz from 4.8ghz fixed setting.

CPU: i7 4790k set to 4.8 ghz, at 1.337v

Can someone explain why is my CPU boosting by itself to 4.9 ghz, when Turbo is set to off, and it's been set to 4.8 ghz.

I had HWMonitor running when I was playing Rainbow Six Siege, is there a reason why it's going above my set limits. It's really odd, but not bad. Since everything is running smoothly.

Any explanation would be good, I did google searching and found nothing above it going above fixed multiplier.

Well HWmonitor sucks for one. What does CPUz or HWinfo say?

I actually never used HWinfo.

I saw 4.9 after a gaming session. It never happened before, I monitored this several times.

In CPUz it always shows 4.8 or 4.7999 ghz

We can conclude that HWmonitor sucks and this is why every one recommends HWinfo.
