    i7 7820x will not boost further than 4.0 Ghz


      i7 7820x

      Asus ROG STRIX E-Gaming Motherboard


      My CPU will not boost further than 4.0 no matter what, I understand that its supposed to go up to 4.3 and 4.5 with Intel Boost 3.0 but it will not. I need some help on figuring this out.

      I remember that my CPU would get up to 4.5 when I first got it, it no longer will even get to 4.3Ghz.


      Latest BIOS udpated

      Ran processor diagnostic tool

      Intel Boost is enabled in BIOS

      New intel boost 3.0 installed
