i5 4690k / MSI z97 gaming 5 OC questions

I've overclocked my CPU using the MSI OC Genie button in the BIOS, however the clock speed is fixed at 4000mhz (OC speed set by OC Genie)

does the speed have to be fixed in this way? how do I change the setting to allow the CPU to only use as much power when necessary?

  1. There should be an option in BIOS for dynamic clock speed/ratio. Ensure it is enabled.
