z690 DDR4 a pro, 12600k arctic 2 h20 cooler, temps are cold and voltages low even when performing single or multi core cinebench r23 benchmarks.
max vcore 1.158
max temps in the low 30s *C

The bios states 4.8-5.2GHz depending on my selected OC settings however the P-cores never actually clock over 2.099 GHz. Ever! Even on default reset settings. When gaming or benchmarking they never clock up. At idle they rest at 4 or 500MHz until a load is placed.

Enabled intel boost, obviously. What am I missing? I can get the e-cores to clock up to 4GHz from what I've tried. Adaptive voltage, auto, tried em all.
