my cpu is fx8300
motherboard GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-S2 (rev 1.2)

max processor state 100% in power options, c6 enabled and core performance boost enabled (4.1ghz) in bios

i tried single, double, multi thread load testing in cpuz and prime95, it won't go above 3.6ghz no matter what - open hw monitor shows max 3616mhz all cores, but it should boost to 4ghz right?

please help, what do i do

That is a big maybe but it wouldn't hurt, you'd need a heatsink, and some thermal pads, as well as a way to mount it.
