    4690k is locked at 8x multiplier


      I just changed my case and motherboard (from a Asus MAXIMUS VII HERO to a MAXIMUS VII IMPACT), and after a clean reinstall of Windows 10 (which I was running before), the CPU is locked at 8x multiplier so it only runs at 800 Mhz (it is a 4690k). I've run mutliple stress tests, and the CPU goes to 100% but at 800Mhz.


      I've reset CMOS, BIOS settings, tried downgrading the BIOS to older versions, but nothing gives at this point and I am ready to give up.


      Full system specs:

      4690k + Corsair H100i GTX

      16GB 1866Mhz Corsair Dominator


      Crucial 256GB SSD

      WD Blue 1TB

      Corsair 250D
