    Strange bug in offset mode - 4960x - bios 4503

    I noticed something really funny, if you start a bench like Lynx or the Cinebench CPU, set in offset, frequency work at 4.6Ghz. The problem is present when starting some games or graphics bench such as Batman Arkham Origins or Unigine Heaven 4. The cpu instead work up to 4.6Ghz, work at 3.6Ghz

    I think that it's a Turbo Mode bug...

    P.S. Problem is present also with vcore manual mode.

    When this bug will be fixed? is a serious matter ..

    In this way, the overclocking has no meaning.

    ----------------

    The BUG is also present with bios 4502/3 and 4403. If I launch Unigine Heaven 4 or Batman A. Origins, the frequency of the processor does not go beyond 3.6GHz.

    In theory, the frequency of a 3D application startup should always be 4.6Ghz.

    ----------------

    The situation:

    - With bios 4502/4503 and CPU Ivy Brdige-E, in the configuration menu of the ram "Mode 2" is not working properly. Is recognized less ram than the one installed in the system.
    - In overclock the cpu with bios 45xx requires more vcore bios compared to 4403.
    - With all the bios from 4403, the offset mode and manual are suffering from the problem of the turbo bug, on some applications the frequency of the CPU is working properly, while about some games and graphics bench cpu frequency remains at 3.6.
    - The BUG in Windows, 1 MHz and 0.00 in the task manager, is present in both the cpu sandy bridge and ivy bridge when you disable the speedstep.

    Please solve these problems as soon as possible.

    I don't think this is just affecting IVY-E as I have a 3960X on BIOS 4403 and I also encounter the strange bug.

    With prime 95 my CPU clocks up to the target rate of 4.6ghz but in Heaven, 3D Mark or when playing a game it only runs at 4.2ghz. Not quite the drop some of you have been reporting but still annoying nevertheless.

    I've turned off Intel Speedstep for the time being and the cores now all run at 4.6ghz constantly.

    My CPU is run at a manual voltage of 1.4v under water so temps are not really a problem. Be nice if it was fixed though so I could re-enable Speedstep for when I'm not gaming / benchmarking.

    We talk about IVY-E because we have a CPU IVY-E, these new bios should ensure good support, it is normal that the attention is pointed more about these cpu. When I had the 3960x I stopped at the bios 4102 which I think is the most stable overall.

    I hope they fix soon.
