    ROG Strix X470: 3700x unable to reach 4.4ghz boost clock

    Is anyone able to hit their advertised boost clock with any Asus boards?

    I've read that this is BIOS dependent.
    Is there anything I can do in the BIOS currently to get it to work?

    I'm using Cinebench 20 single core for testing.

    I see three of your cores reaching 4.4GHz - ok, 4,392MHz...

    This is probably due to spread spectrum enabled in BIOS which is enabled by default for better EMI compatibility.

    You can try to turn it off (if possible on your motherboard) get to true 4.4GHz but don't expect any performance improvement, just the tool will report full 4.4GHz instead of 4.392MHz.
