    I7 6700k not working at it's potential.

      Ok I just bought this processor and it is not benching at the correct speeds. I've messed around with the simple BIOS options. I have selected the Sync all cores option and it make a very slight difference in my score for the CPUZ bench. I have done minor over clocks because someone recommended it might be a lazy CPU. I was also told it was being thermally throttled. I have had the freaking heat sink off and on so many times messing with thermal paste. I will post all the results of my tests below.

      CPUZ, Hyper Pi and Prime 95 was used for these tests. I used the blend test for around 1:20 seconds for Prime 95. I am not a very technical guy, I would like to see if my processor is faulty.
