Hey,
I recently benchmarked my PC and my CPU score seems extremely bad. I don't know too much about the average of it, but the boost clock should go up to 5GHz as far as I know. Mine just got to around 3,603 MHz..
Any ideas what the reason for that could be? (It's not a fresh windows installation, but the score shouldn't be that bad. I wasn't running anything that was consuming that much performance)

Edit:
RAM: 32GB 3200MHz Corsair Vengeance LPX 2 x 16GB
 
install/run HWmonitor to see what core speeds are actually achieved during a run of CPU-Z/bench/stress CPU...

Assuming you are not in any sort of Economy mode, and have not disabled SpeedStep, etc...

Stock behavior is for it to turbo all cores to about 4.6 GHz under a heavy all-core load, barring any MCE- enabled trickery which will allow all cores that high if/when power/temp budgets allow...... (You will only see 5 GHz in brief single core loads, otherwise.....)
