Dear community, I never overclocked hackintosh, so before buying new faster setup, I wanted to try this out. I found some tutorials online, but I did not want to experiment with various kext files – only bios settings which could be easily reverted because it's still my main workstation. I've already found that Intel EIST function has to be disabled for freq. to overcome 3,5 GHz, but even when I overclocked my frequencies wont go above 3,9 GHz when fully loaded. Am I missing something?

P.S. I am running Gigabyte Z77x-UD5H + 3770K, Sierra. My BIOS config is set to 42x multiplier on every core and I followed these steps(screenshots of BIOS): https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/drives-not-being-ejected-properly-on-sleep-mavericks-10-9-upgrade.115056/post-700069 post #3

Thanks for your help. advance.
