Can't change speed on gigabyte motherboard..

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I'm trying to change the CPU clock ratio of the i5 7600k on my Gigabyte b250m-ds3h motherboard. I can only put max 42 in, when I set it to higher, it just sets it back to "Auto".

Why was I able to set it up to 4.2GHz? Standard out of the box is 3.8

Because 4.2Ghz is the turbo boost from Intel
