    i7-2600K only showing 2 cores/4 threads

      I just bought a new i7-2600K procesor. Open the box and installed it into Asus P8Z68-V Pro board. In bios the descrition shows all 4 cores. When I view in Task Manager in windows it show 2 cores as "Parked". CPU-Z shows 2 cores 4 threads. Is there something I need to do to get all four cores to show and work...  Also it will not overclock it stays at 3.4Ghz.  Do I have a bad processor, it does run on the 2 cores.
