i5 4690(non k) only at 3.7Ghz turbo boost

Hi guys, well, like it says the title, my i5 only gets 3.7Ghz under heavy loads, i have turbo boost activated. In bios, the target cpu turbo-mode speed shows 3700mhz, how can i hook it to 3900mhz? thanks

Specs:
ASUS ROG Maximus VI Impact (1603 Bios)
Intel Core i5 4690
Corsair Vengeance 2x4GB 1600mhz
ASUS Strix GTX 970
XFX TS 550w

  1. I believe a i5 4690 with:
    1 core in use will run at 3.9Ghz,
    2 core in use will run at 3.8Ghz
    3 core in use will run at 3.7Ghz
    4 core in use will run at 3.6Ghz
    If I not mistaken.
  2. Without being unlocked you really dont have many options. You cant physically change it so the Turbo boost will be the only way to go.
  3. What Vcore is it at at 3.7GHz? Might need increasing.
  4. im able to change the BCLK frequency, if i put 105.4, the cpu turbo-mode speed goes to 3899mhz, and ram 1686mhz, it is safe?

    I think Suztera might be right. Leave it as is.
