i7-4770k Frequency Fail

Version 1

    I bought a Boxed Intel i7-4770k processor from Intel. I have tried it in an Az-Rock mother board and it fail to recognize it after a I rebooted the machine.

     

    I purchased a Asus z87-c motherboard and I thought it was working fine but have been disappointed in the performance.

     

    I recently ran a test from  Passmark.com and it put me as equivalent in performance as a Pentium Dual Core. Then I ran the Intel Processor Diagnostic tool and it fails at the CPU Frequency Test and it failed.

     


    The results follow.
