I have an I5 8600k with a motherboard with no overclock capabilities and I was recently messing around with the bios settings and it suddenly decided to lock at 3.6ghz when i was getting 4.1ghz before. I reverted settings and it did nothing, I set bios back to default settings and putting turbo on and it did nothing. I reset my bios so many times toggling settings on and off trying to reset any setting that might make a difference to no avail. I have done benchmarks which say its at 3.6ghz ive looked on HWmonitor, it says the same, task manager says the same. Ive spent the whole day looking through threads and youtube videos trying to find a solution but I cannot find one. any ideas?
Also my CPU temp is well in the 30C degrees
