    Question 9400F + Z390 speed at gaming < 3900

    I have newly purchased the Asus Z390 and Intel Core i5-9400F with 2x8GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000 MHz. When I played games like Far Cry 5, Battlefield V and Fortnite, the frequency is only 2970 MHz, is that because I have not updated the BIOS? I saw everyone is getting 3905 MHz!!
